edit, scratch that, doesn't look like you have one that close.

 

Im going to go with the second build and see if i cant find any decent combos to lower the price alittle bit.

Only thing you could do better was to add a fan to replace the loud fan on the Cooler Master Hyper 212 Evo

Something like a Cosair SP120 quiet edition those are cheap

Wouldn't go with the 212+ or 212 Evo when you can buy a Thermalright True 120M or Macho 120 for $30:

i changed a couple of things to save alittle bit more money. which is nice because I still have to buy a mouse/keyboard and desk anyways here is the new list.

 

NZXT source 210 with Window

Rosewill Capstone 550w NON modular (10.00 cheaper then modular)

Team Xtreem Dark Series 12800 8GB

Gigabyte GA-Z87M-D3H Micro Mobo

Hyper 212 plus saved $10.00 from the EVO

Samsung 840 PRO 128gb

Powercolor AX7950

 

Combo

i5-4670 + Liteon iHAS124-04 (saved 3.00)

 

New Total is 996.26

 

There will be $25.00 in rebates to send it which brings me to 971.26

I don't know, to me the extra $10 for a semi-modular PSU seems worth it.

To shave off another $10, drop down to a 100W smaller PSU. Seriously, that is a very low power system and you'd be lucky to even pull 250W at stock. Gaming load will be less. Rosewill Capstone 450W, non-modular.

dropping to a 450 watt from the 550w is a 20.00 difference the 550 is 79.99 and the 450 is 59.99. As long as a 450 wont run into any issues im fine with it. I honestly dont know how much the system will use for watts so as long as 450 is more then enough then ok

 

the price would be 979.16 is i drop to the 450watt. my only issue is will the PSU still be good from the 8000 series when they come out. dont wan to screw myself
