It comes to about $840, because pcpartpicker doesn't count the combo @ MC.
Any improvements to be made?

Can't argue with it--good work. The only missing thing is an SSD, and if you have some leftover dollars, I'd try to get at least a 60 GB for the OS and a game or two. But SSDs are getting cheaper and better all the time, so that might be a better target for a future upgrade.

Yeah, I was barely cutting the budget as is, but definitely going to add an SSD in the future.
