The parts are a lot cheaper at newegg, also combos,...

CPU + Mobo + Free Game
IMO the PRO version would be good enough unless you want dual-LAN and such,...

RAM - Get 2x 4GB kit,
Corsair 8GB DDR3

CASE
$20 off w/ promo code EMCKJJJ26, ends 1/17

PSU - You wont need 1KW, for high overclocking and dual cards, 850W would have enough headroom

^ Mainly because it is cheap and I especially recommend 2x 4GB kits because it allows for future upgrades if any as there will be 2 RAM slots free,...
But if the main usage of the build is going to be gaming, then 4GB would suffice if the OP wants to cut cost,...

And nice PSUs you have listed,...

You have a point there, DDR3 prices did go down by a lot and, 8gb is more future proof and, better for multitasking.
Also just came across this psu: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...
Cheapest high quality 850w 80plus silver psu you can find on the egg, it might look ugly but who cares? you will be looking at the monitor not the back/inside of your pc ;)  .

So going with the 2x4gb kit and a different Powersupply I have your guy's approval? I have 175 dollars via gift card for tigerdirect.....and new egg is so much cheaper that sucks

^ Well you can get any 1 part from tigerdirect which is similarly priced to newegg,...

Yes if you look around you should find a couple items at the same kind of price at Tiger. As with most sites they tend to have a couple items cheaper than each other whilst others are wildly more expensive, just need the patience to search
