Is this a good build for the price?


two of the ram above(comes with rebate)


(comes with rebate)

(comes with rebate)


(comes with rebate)



Are rebates actually possible(as in do they actually send the rebate) or is it just a scheme to lure customers? Will they send me the rebate within 1 month of the rebate filing or should I just avoid rebates altogether?
Am I missing any components? Do I need more fans other than the ones already provided with the case(3 120mm)?
Do I need a separate fan/heatsink other then the one that comes with the cpu?

Price before rebates: $912
Price after rebates: $812

I still want to make it more cheaper any way I could do that without sacrificing any performance? I am not looking at overclocking the processor anytime in the next year but wouldn't want to downgrade to a 4770 locked.

I know this is a long list to review so thanks in advance!
