Total price $995.92 before rebates, after rebates $965.92.

Does anyone know where to get Windows 7 Home Premium for $60? I remember seeing it on a (LEGIT) site where they sold them, they were refurbished.

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:

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
