That's not obtainable on a $1250 budget. If you were going with a $1400 budget it would easily but not on $1200. Not everyone lives near a Micro Center so while that offer is good, that may not work for everybody. On builds I generally try to emphasize spreading the budget out and getting every component you can of the highest quality for your budget rather than cutting corners and then you're stuck with a micro ATX board that can't handle your GPU and you sacrifice an x16 lane for SLI / Crossfire in the future. Or you get a poorly constructed case that falls apart on you. You don't want that.
