Help me cut $100 off this build

I'm working on my first build with a $1500 budget, and I've got a really nice set of components that goes a bit over:

CPU - i7 950 - $300
Motherboard - Gigabyte GA-X58A-UD3R - $210
Memory - Corsair XMS3 6GB (3x2GB) DDR3 200 - $175
GPU - GTX 480 - $500
HDD WD Cavalier Black 500GB 7200 RPM 32MB Cache - $70
Optical Drive - Cheap SATA - $20
Case - Antec Nine Hundred Two Black Steel ATX Mid Tower - $120
PSU - Corsair CMPSU 750-TX 750V - $110
OS - Windows 7 Home Premium - $100

If I can get these components cheaper anywhere else (these are all Newegg prices), tell me. Otherwise, help me reduce this by $100. Thanks!

  1. Still too expensive :
    Case : Coolermaster CM690 or Antec 300
    PSU : don't pick the modular
    GPU : GTX460
    CPU : i7 930
  2. the i7 950 is fine, the new case HAF 912 is hitting stores soon and its 55 bucks, so get that. gtx 480 you can keep

    hard drive, http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16822152181&cm_re=spinpoint_f3-_-22-152-181-_-Product
  3. Is this a gaming build?

    If so, then just drop it down to an i5-750/760 and Asus p7p55D-E Pro you'll save well over $100 btwn CPU and mobo.

    You should however make the switch to the XFX PSU, HAF 922, g skill Pi, and a samsung spinpoint f3, which is $5 more for a 1Tb drive.
