Note: Since it's a combo, one deal does not appear on the list: an i5 2005k Intel Sandy Bridge processor + Windows 7 Premium for $300.
EDIT: Wrong link. Amending...
Every item comes with free shipping and roughly $60 off after rebates.

i will make 3 suggestions.

replace the mobo with this one. its not that the g43 is terrible, but the asrock extreme3 has z68 features, a better layout, pci-e 3.0, includes an sli bridge, its cooler looking, and its slightly cheaper:

get 1600mhz ram. while the performance difference is very small, the price difference is too
get a 750w psu if you want to SLI.

personally im not in love with the case but it will function just fine.

Cases are basically user preference for the most part.
