I would look in to Processor/MB combos, might even find a deal that includes the OS as well. Was there a reason why you wanted the i5-4440? If you can afford to fit it in, I would go with the i5-4670k instead. That would require an 1150 socket MB. You really arent going to notice a difference in memory speed (for gaming)with 8gb. Would try and get between 1333mhz-2000mhz, just try and find a deal.

The reason I wanted that i5 is because my friend has it and he says its really good and worth the money

oh.

It's $991 because of the keyboard. In my opinion, what matters the most is the feel. If it doesn't sink all the way, it works. So you don't need a $100 keyboard. Use a simple Logitech mouse and keyboard, and you can play your way. Otherwise, with everything, it's around $840.

Gigabyte GA-Z87M-D3H 1.0 Micro ATX LGA1150 Motherboard has an onboard USB 3.0 header, but the NZXT Source 210 (Black) ATX Mid Tower Case does not have front panel USB 3.0 ports. Does that matter?

No. It's not in the front, and it's optional.
