Case is 210 roughly. Edit: + S&H which I can get for half normal rate so like... 225 - 230. vs 250 or so.

PSU is 99 dollars after 30 dollar mail in rebate. Edit: Free S&H

That case goes for 230 on newegg, an antec 1200 with a TP-750 blue will run you slightly more but comes with the power supply and a free 1TB HDD after combo right now

Get a single kit of ram, toms has done many tests and unless you plan to be doing a lot of work using photoshop or premier then you wont get a performance boost out of more than 4 GB of ram.

If you dont need another hard drive there is an $80 off combo with the i5 750 and the antec 1200

it brings the i5 easily into the price range which is definitely something to consider.

I am not changing my processor or case etc.

Also I can get the case through my friends business for cheaper then ebay amazon newegg etc.

I was more looking for error/compatibility checks thanks for the comments everyone.
