Definitely drop the CPU bud, 2500K.

If you have a Microcenter locally they offer it for only $179.99 which is an INSANE price for this CPU.

I highly recommend you check them out, the prices for their CPU's are unrivaled (imo).

If you come to this side of the mountain, Fry's sells it for the same price. However, once you add in sales tax, it's not a savings over the Ewiz and Superbiiz deals that pop up every two weeks or so.

I believe its just a similarly named store/website, because I looked at the store locations to your link and I don't see my city.

Save some money on your PSU. These both are comparable to the Corsair one you choosing, but a bit cheaper. The XFX will get my choice as it has a rebate as well and brings it down to just $69.99.

Or spend a little more like 5 buxs more and get the TX750 on sale:

Or even better Antec High Current Gamer Series HCG-750 750W for $69.99 after rebates:

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16817371049

I personally choose the Antec HCG 750 watts for that price you can never find anything close to it. Other things looks good... the mobo is such a good deal..
