Drop the cooler for now and put that coin into 1866Mhz DDR3 the AMD APUs like their ram speed and OC ok-ish on the stock cooler(if not OCing don't even think about the cooler as stock is fine). These are the changes I would make if you wanted to cut a bit of coin.
Antec Three Hundred Two Mid Tower Gaming Case 302 ATX 3X5.25 6X3.5INT No PS Front USB3.0 & Audio - Antec - THREE HUNDRED TWO
$39 after MIR
Seasonic SS-350ET 350W ATX12V 20/24PIN ATX Power Supply Active PFC 80PLUS 120MM Fan OEM - Seasonic Electronics - SS-350ET
if not adding a GPU, don't worry about paying a PS that can handle it for it right now.
Just my 2 cents if I wanted to cut that build down a bit.
