This leaves you some wiggle room for a better case or maybe a 560 TI instead of base 560....

Check out my $650 build here:

You don't need a HDD so the actual total will only be like $570.

HerdNerfer your build is 517 after rebates. A lot of rebates, also Microcenter prices can't be used unless the OP has Microcenter locally.

OP All Microcenter prices are only if you can pick up the product locally.
