Youre really going to run that on a 550 XFX bronze PSU? I know it goes completely against what question youre asking, but you should save more, and try not to cut corners, if youre looking at getting a PC you dont need to upgrade later.

I need the price to be around $850

Here is what I had but it is over my price range.. I want to keep performance as much as possible!

The main use of this system will be WoW and Streaming Console CoD.

Also I want to only use Newegg so I can get it all shipped together quickly, thanks!

Massive downgrade on the GPU, but there isn't much else you can really do when your $75 over on a budget build.

You could drop the Optical Drive altogether, pull one out of an old machine if you have one.

theres not a lot you can save, maybe 10 bux here and there with about 40 in total... pick similar parts with rebates or combo deals is pretty much the only way your gonna drop the price significantly... its a damn nice rig for the money thats for sure.
but check out the fractal design cases. there pretty decent for people on a budget.
antec do a better 550w psu that costs about 10 bux cheaper and crucial do cheaper 8 gig ram bundles on the balistix line.

Ok so it seems like I have no choice other than to get a little cheaper video card, what is a really good card for cheaper?

Only one I could fit without compromising badly somewhere else was the GTX660.
