8GB Corsair Vengeance RAM
1 TB Caviar Blue HDD (7200 RPM)
EVGA GTX 660/760
Corsair 200R Case

Corsair 500/600W PSU
OS: Windows 7
Monitor & Keyboard already owned.

Stuff I want to use/play:

The optical and the OS push you a bit over the limit, but if you got the CPU you requested you'd be WAY over it.
