^ You sure your build is below 800$? OP needs monitor and OS.

Check out my siggy build for 600$

Swap the i3 2100 for the i5 2500K & This motherboard (+120)

Then swap the GPU for the 6870 (+50)

Change the F3 1TB to the Seagate since it's cheaper in CA
http://www.newegg.ca/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E1682...
So it totals to $770 for parts.
Here's the monitor ($120)

OS ($100)

Total: $990

I think there fine now, 7200.12's have been solid HDDs.

That combo is overpriced, plus you're not going to CF/SLI so, it's kinda meh. Might as well go with the combo iKyun said if you want the ability to CF in the future.
