And by the way, you forgot to include a HDD which makes the current price irrelevant.

Obviously that much better, but as bruflot pointed out the hdd will put you way over $600. If you can swing the i5-2500k + 6870 then do it.

Thats a fairly solid build, The only things I can think of to shave off a few dollars, are to go with an HD6790 over the HD6870, and get the I5-2500 instead of the k model if you dont plan on overclocking at all. The i3 is another good choice, and will bring your cost down $100.

What is absolute max budget?
