Delta 750W PSU (Custom Sleeved too <3)
$110

Antec 600 v2
$50

So you should be able to do something comparable with $500(USD). Really, drop the x6 to an x4, get a different PSU (I probably could have done better to get one on sale, but I REALLY liked the one I bought) and you'll be at $500. I've got no complaints with my system, lolrolls everything I used to have problems with. Just need an SSD for my OS drive now. I would also recommend being patient and shopping around OCN. Can nab some good deals.
You forgot about the HD.

Meant to mention I saved my hdds from my last build - Person I sold my rig to didn't want my HDDs as he had his own. Sorry.

Again though, drop a few specs, add a 500gb HD for $40. Still probably get it for ~$500
AMD :D
