Try http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16813128627 for a motherboard. $5 cheaper, better quality.

As for the CPU cooler, you could use the stock cooler, but they can be noisy. You could use either a CM Hyper TX3 (http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16835103064) or Hyper 212 (http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16835103099). The Hyper 212 is better, but both are vastly better than the stock cooler.

You could use a 120GB SSD as your OS Drive (like http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16820147188). It will make load times much faster, but it won't affect frame rates, and would add just over $100 to the build.

Other than that, I can't think of anything else.

If you clicked the "Buy" button my suggestions are likely meaningless, but...
$200 is a lot for a HD7850. The equivalent to slightly better (per HardOCP) GTX650 Ti Boost Edition should be around $160.
The Xigmatek Gaia cools within 1C of the Hyper212 EVO (making it better than the Hyper212+) but is quieter (per Frostytech reviews) and is cheaper, at $25.
HardOCP dinged the 120GB Samsung 840 for poor [write] performance, but the Crucial M500 or Plextor M5 should be available for a similar price. I agree that a SSD boot drive is the way to go though. I would not go below 120GB-128GB unless you don't have many programs, in which case 80GB-90GB may be enough.

That's decent. It won't play the newest games on UltraMaxOhWOW! but should play on "Good" settings.
