^Good build.

To OP: if you don't plan on upgrading the monitor resolution, then jbakerlent's power supply is not needed because you won't need to crossfire/sli. So you can save a few bucks on the power supply

Other than that, his build is great for your needs

^+1, and you could also drop down to a 770 board if you are not going to crossfire.

I assumed 800-600 really meant 800-900, which is about the price of my build.

Since you are not building for at least another month you should keep checking for deals. You can usually find a really good combo deal every once in a while and save money that way. I'm sure there will be plenty of deals on black friday as well.

Are there any other ways I can shave off some of the price to get it down to around 700? I really have never overclocked so that doesnt matter to me. The only things that matter for me are a good motherboard and graphics card.
