I might be able to optimize this build to under budget, but that can take awhile so here it is for now.

HDD($60) - Western Digital WD10EZEX 1TB 7200 RPM 64MB Cache SATA 6.0Gb/s 3.5"

RAM($63) - Team Vulcan 8GB (2 x 4GB) DDR3 1600 (PC3 12800)

GPU($178 with promo code REMMUS79) - MSI R9 270 GAMING 2GB 256-Bit GDDR5

Case+PSU($95) - Rosewill LINE GLOW ATX Mid Tower + Rosewill CAPSTONE-450-M 80 PLUS GOLD

CPU+Motherboard($170) - AMD FX-6300 + BIOSTAR TA970 AM3+ AMD 970 + SB950 ATX

Total Price - $566.50, everything has free shipping. Rebates not included if any.

*edit* That's the best I could do.

Dont bother with that TR-2 PSU you picked its not very good

Its also way overkill spend money on quality not quantity you dont need
