Is there anyway i can get this build "" between $1200-$1500 without getting rid of the gtx 780? Thanks for the response, I made a few changes. The custom case was a mistake, removed it. As for the mouse and keyboard, i don't want to spend alot of money on that, oh and I already have a F710 Wireless Gamepad.

That's a huge amount of fans. You probably only need a 550 watt power supply. You should probably go for the K series proocessor, even if you don't plan to overclock now, you may in a year or two. There is no need for that crazy of a motherboard, something like the Gigabyte Z87-D3H would do just as well, so you can certainly save some cash there unless you find some specific feature that it lacks that you need.

Personally, I find the speakers, mouse, and keyboard to be terrible. Why spend all this cash on a beastly gaming machine and then buy garbage peripherals that make it sound terrible and awful to control?

Also, what's the "Custom Case" for 99 bucks at the end when you already have a case?

Also, keep in mind that the Case you chose only holds cards up to 9.06" long without removing the drive cage, and the 780 you chose looks like it's 10.5" . . . that's probably an issue.
