Now, I got it as far down as possible. I wouldn't go lower on the GPU. The only thing that's debatable is the motherboard and the PSU... I'm not too sure on the motherboard (I'm sure you could get another one for less. I'm not good with non-overclockable motherboards) and you only need a 407W PSU (meaning 450W or higher). This was a good, reliable one, but I'm sure there are others that are less expensive.
wow thats a good price on the i3 this website is awesome thank you! i see that the 6850 and the 7770 are around the same price point i have a 6850 in my rig and i love it but whats the deal with having multiple models at the same price point whats the difference? Oh and about the case once the parts are nailed down he was going to pick one that was aesthetically pleasing lol
I think the 6850 is better, and the 7770 may just be a rebrand. An aesthetically pleasing (although expensive) case is the NZXT Phantom... they've got some others that are less expensive, too. Unless you're going for a Fractal R3 look, in which case look into Lian-Li
