I'm going to build my new gaming pc. And i want to know if i can get these components in around $900-1000 Budget.

The things are:

Cooler Master Storm Sniper Case $150

Cooler Master Extreme 750W PSU $120

Intel i7 950 $300(Going to OC) Wanted a 920 but couldn't find anywhere.

Cooler Master V10 *** (Already bought! Found it for $70)

80GB Kingston SSD Drive $120

Nvidia GTX470 or GTX 260 SLI ($250-470/$325-260x2)

EVGA X58 SLI LE $230

Western Caviar Black 1TB $100

Corsair 6GB Dominator Ram 1600MHZ $180

and that's pretty much it.

Everything comes out at $1450.

No tax includes, since those are the prices at Amazon and free shipping.

The most i will spend is $1000 and there is two things i can take off from that list:

The Caviar HDD since i already have 2TB HDD and the power supply which i already have a 550W PSU.. don't know if all those components require a bigger psu???

So that's 230 off the price.

Is there a way i can get all those components at my budget? Specials, Black Friday, Cybermonday?

I was thinking of waiting for black friday, but will this components be any lower on black friday or cybermonday? If so, i will wait since this list is $450 over my budget.

I actually want the set up i have. I need SSD since i will be doing some Photoshop work on that pc. When will the 400 series refresh from nvidia be?

My question was if on black friday is possible to bring that price down to my budget? I'm loyal to nvidia and intel :D . I can probably go for a $1500 budget if i sell some of my current computer parts.

Am i better off buying of the parts right now or waiting for black friday?
