Could this build run Overwatch at 75 FPS minimum? I'm willing to use the lowest settings, lowest resolution, and the best performance config. I originally picked based on this guide for Overwatch and items from the 'Modest' tier at Logical Increments, with modifications suggested by friends:

If this build can indeed run OW @ 75 FPS min, would I be able to cut costs?
I'd love to hit $400, whether that means skimping on non-essential components, buying used/pre-built/bundles, or even just waiting a couple months (I understand $400 could be unrealistic since I include the price of the OS). I've managed to cut costs below $400, but with a sub-optimal CPU. Would love to get the i3-6100 while staying below $400, but 75 FPS minimum is still my main objective. This would be my first time buying/building a PC, so let me know if I fucked up.
Replaced the GTX 750 Ti with the GTX 1050, since they are the same price apparently. Should be considerably better than the RX 460 for +$13 ($109.99 vs $96.99).
Re-sourced Windows 10 to Kinguin. Is it a safe bet? Should I spend $5 for buyer protection?
Swapped the 860K for the G4400, and the mobo/RAM for compatibility.
Changed the case from 200R to 100R.
Downgraded PSU to the EVGA 400W.
I'm contemplating the i3-6100 for another $50; will it make a big difference?
