  1. The only thing I'd really suggest would be to not get an mATX motherboard, go with something like this: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16813157302

    Otherwise there really isn't any areas I would say you should trim down on.
  2. Your best bet would be to get a 6870, oc it, and get a cheaper PSU.
    You'll still be able to game at 1080p.

    You're now well within your budget. :)
  3. Also, you could go to an i5 3450 which is very similar in performance but cheaper by $10
    In addition, you could use a rosewill challenger case, which is slightly cheaper.
    Furthermore, ddr3 1333 will not degrade your performance by a noticeable amount.

    I also agree with going with a full atx board, but this one has a better chipset:
    Biostar z77: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16813138352

    You can OC your processor by 400mhz by its multiplier.
    Plus it has power and reset switches for an out of box test build.
    My previous recommendations still stand as well
