Here's what I came up with :) 

Intel Core i7 3770k -

ASRock Extreme 4 Z77 Motherboard -

Corsair Vengeance 8GB Kit 1600Mhz CL9 -


Corsair TX650v2 -

Cooler Master Hyper 212 EVO CPU Cooler -

Crucial M4 SSD (OS) -

Samsung Spinpoint 1TB HDD (Storage) -

LG Blu-Ray player (one you listed) -

NZXT Phantom case (one you listed) -

The grand total comes down to $1423.53 with shipping.

If you add in a monitor and OS to this cost, it would most likely bring the price up to around $1600-$1800.

I chose a different motherboard than the one you listed because you chose a Full Tower case :)  ITX form factor is extremely small and mostly meant for smaller cases :lol:  you'd definitely want a full sized case if you were to show this PC off.
