Here goes:

CPU - FX 8150 - 190$ shipped

Mobo - 970A-UD3 - 110$ shipped

Cooler - Hyper 212+ - 19$ shipped after rebate

HDD - Western Digital Caviar Blue 500GB - 70$ shipped

RAM - G.SKILL Ripjaws X Series 8GB 1866MHz - 55$ shipped

PSU - Rosewill Green Series RG630-S12 630W Continuous - 60$ shipped

Total - 505$

Unless you need the system up and running ASAP, I'd wait for PD since its just about a month away.
