Price adjustment on my build?

Hello there,
Recently, I was recommended the following build and I kinda need to bring the price down because of shipping, maybe to the $800 point or something? Is there any better replacements for any parts I listed below that isn't more expensive? Please help me!

Credits to MadAdmiral for this wonderful build. The total cost of this build is $848. Maybe trim it down to $800? For your information I live in Canada.

Thank you!

  1. I'd say get this combo: AMD Phenom II X4 955 & MSI 890GXM-G65 890GX SATA 6Gbps USB 3.0 MATX $277. If you didn't want/need SATA6G/USB3 then you could cut down even further.

    You can run two HD5770 on those PSUs if you want to crossfire.

    COOLER MASTER Elite RC-310
    http://www.newegg.ca/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16811119203

    G.SKILL Ripjaws Series 4GB 1333 CAS 8

  4. ^ Well I do agree that HD 5770 is not a power hungry card, but IMO 600W would be safe for 2 of those cards...
  5. I've run two of those on my 450W Corsair VX. And TV tuner, sound card, 3HDDs and whatnot. True, the 450VX is actually a 500W Seasonic.
  6. ^ Hmm...but dont take me wrong, I still dont feel like suggesting a low powered PSU if crossfiring...
