Why hello there. I'm currently trying to build a fresh new PC and I'm having trouble trying to lower the cost of my PC parts in order to fit my budget. I'm trying to get my PC to be about $650. Currently I'm way off and I'm around $900 with the PC parts picked already. I will be shopping at MicroCenter in order to get the parts since I don't like using my credit card online. Here are the current parts:

Intel i5-2500k - $170
AsRock Z77 Extreme4 - $90 ($50 off motherboard if you buy a processor)
Corsair Vengeance Blue 8GB - $57
OczTech 60GB Agility 3 SATA3 SSD - $70
SeaGate 500 GB SATA NCQ 16MB - $75
Samsung 22X SATA DVD BURNER - $16
Corsair Carbide Series 300R - $80
Antec HCG 750 WATT ATX Power Supply - $88
Diamond Radeon HD 7850 2 GB - $270 (I really want to try and get the graphics card since it has extremely high performance, low watt usage and runs rather cool so I really don't want to change this card)

Will anyone please help me switch out parts to lower the price so it may fit my budget? If all else fails I may have to switch to a GTX 560 ti or maybe even a GTX 560 and I really don't want to do that.

there are cheaper ram options such as gskill . here it is

you can probably hold off of the SSD for now. nevertheless, here is a cheaper option that performs better

here is a cheaper case that is also more functional

here is a cheaper power supply. since the 7850 doesnt suck up much power, a 650w will do the job fine

this card comes with a better cooler

The parts are very nice but I want to try and avoid buying online and buy from either Microcenter, Tigerdirect or Frys. They all have stores nearby where I live. I will take the parts into consideration and the new price of the computer would be about ~$780
