Switch the 128GB SSD for a 64gb one (for Intel SSD caching), get an Antec 300, a cheaper mobo, buy some stuff used, and that should cover it.

ya. intel x79 sixcore build with a 1200 budget is hard to do if you did you would have to reuse ur gtx 480 if you couls go 1400 it would be a much better build

at 1200 for a nice complete system i would go with a 2600k and oc the crap out of it you would end up with a much more rounded system
