You link to the Newegg shopping cart doesn't work. It pulls up what I have in my shopping cart, which is about $200 to $400 over your budget.
You need to post actual components for your build, along with the Newegg link. This will allow us to better help you with your build. Another option is to post a public wish-list from Newegg over posting your shopping cart.
