Swap for your ram -$20
Using the price from Microcenter for you - $40
you have no dvd burner listed so i guess you dont need - $20
total = $903 with a much better graphics card, psu, and its a 1TB HD.

Too much spent on the case, get the NZXT Lexa S

For a GPU, get the 6870, here's a list of trusted manufacturers on Newegg

ATI Radeon HD 6870 - http://goo.gl/yDPy6

I'd get a 650W, not 600

Corsair 650TX - http://goo.gl/eqmeW

Get a Samsung Spinpoint F3 1 TB, not a WD

and I hate you for how cheap you can get that PSU, how does Micro Center make any money >_>

you could check out this mobo: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

cooler master isn't known as a great power supply, if you want better quality without paying the $100+ for a corsair, look at http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168....

you could cut some cost by going with a mid tower. you aren't running a hot card, sli or crossfire or OC'd i7 or anything. you can get a mid tower with 4 fans with plenty of air flow for half the price.

you could either save that money or use it to upgrade your graphics card to a 5830, gtx 460 or 5850
