Well for one, you don't need a Z77 board with a sandy bridge chip and also, if you are buying from microcenter, they were offering a discount on motherboards when purchasing CPU's. You could stand to save a lot right there.

You could also drop the Blu-ray drive for now in lieu of a standard drive and get it later unless, of course, you absolutely have to burn blu-rays right now.

Corsair has some ram of the same type for $10 less.

You could lose the aftermarket cooler for now and OC later if you are thinking that way.

Cheaper mouse/kb?
