could you not afford a gpu at the time, i mean good god, a 210!? I own one and the only thing I used it for was a media pc, then it had incurable overheating issues so I used it for a thermo electric cooler (peltier) experiment. but other wise your choices look good for parts focus more on spending on the gpu, your processor is solid (as long as you dont plan on overclocking it), you have a pretty good mix of HDD to SSD, just make sure you get whatever mouse fits your play style and hand size. whatever is the best value and price/performance, please PLEASE dont get a high end gpu (780ti/ r9 290x ) they are just a waste of money, the most i would ever spend on a gpu is 500 dollars and that is pushing it.
The gtx 770 have a nice price / performance. If you live outside america you could also consider the 280x, should be around the same price with similar performance as the gtx 770.
at the time i didnt have enough to get the gpu. so i used what i had in my old pc. im undecided on to get a gtx 780 or something else. im still learning a good amount about my options.
GTX 770, GTX 780. That GTS 210 is probably weaker than the integrated on that i7 lol.
Larger SSD. Try a 128 or 256GB Samsung 840 Evo or Kingston HyperX.
Mouse is purely personal. I have a $15 E-3LUE Cobra II that works great. You can find them on amazon.
