Is there anything I can trim down on?

After tax + shipping it comes out to $1210. I'd like to keep more around the lines of $1150 and downwards. Also note that I'll be getting the 2500k at microcenter for $180, so the true final cost at this moment is $1165. Also, the 560 ti 448 is a price placeholder for either a 7870 or the Kepler equivalent. I also plan to CF/SLI down the road, in case someone was going to suggest a drastic PSU downgrade. But yea I'm willing to listen to any suggestions, much appreciated in advance smile.gif

On a side note, does anybody know when HDD prices will go down? I got my 1st Samsung F3 for $60, and now it's been $160 for awhile. That's one of the things that's killing my final price.

I'd grab an SSD instead of an HDD unless you absolutely need the 1TB drive.

Prices won't drop for a few years. Thai floods led to inflation that won't drop.

You could trim that budget, but you would be hurting yourself in the long run. Later add an SSD to the 1TB and your golden. That would be a solid rig. You would get solid performance at stock speeds and overclocking potential is there on all the parts. Out of personal preference I would go G.Skill ram though. Buy assured my friend, solid build!
