Then all you do is go to newegg and match up the parts. But be prepared to spend some more money. I always try to shop the best deals along with free shipping. That way it means pay less for the same quality parts.

Hold on ...that build is wrong. I have an 860 in there and not the 750. That's why that build is so spendy. I'm fixing it now.
