Sorry don't know any newegg promo codes but I can offer you some advice on your build.

Quick Question though. What is the resolution you plan on playing on?

Get rid of that Case/PSU. You can keep the case if you want but DEFINITELY a NO on the PSU it comes with. PSU are quite vital things and if that thing fails it can take out everything with it.

PSU: Antec Truepower 650W - 109.99

Heatsink (optional incase you overclock): Cooler Master 212 Plus - 29.99
http://www.newegg.ca/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E1683...

Other Cases: Antec 300 - 89.99*
http://www.newegg.ca/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E1681...

NZXT M59 (funky front side but still something that seems good. The reviews on this are good) - 74.99
http://www.newegg.ca/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E1681...

Depending on how much you are willing to spend on the case I can recommend more or someone else can too.

Everything else looks solid (RAM included) except card reader or wireless card since I have no particular experience with card readers or wireless cards.

*Use PriceCanada to get cheaper price for any of your parts should you not be exclusive to newegg.ca

For example: Canada Computer sells Antec 300 for 58.99
