  1. First what I'd cut is the headset (get that last) and the expensive peripherals (IMO the keyboard/mouse are the least important part of the4 build and you can certainly get those later. and you certainly don't need an extra NIC as the one built into your motherboard will do fine - this will save $50. If you need Wifi a ~$15 - ~$20 USB adapter will do fine, that's all I ever use.

    If you're not going to overclock you can drop the i5-2500k to the i5-2400 and you'll save an extra $60.

    Another recommendation would be to cut the HAF 932 to the HAF 912 and you'll save another $50.

    So with those options you'll save a good $184 off the cost of this build and you'll still have a very capable system.
