No SLI so the extreme 4 is not needed. Z77 Pro3 will do.

And I'd switch the PSU to something better. Such as http://us.ncix.com/products/?sku=65319&vpn=PPCMK3S600&m... or http://us.ncix.com/products/?sku=59616&vpn=P1650SNLB9&m...

Those changes would get you under $1100.

You could even reduce that price more by going with the Z75 Pro3.

Unless there is a microcenter near by the PSU is gonna run you ~$7 more so the savings from the Z75 will keep you at the $1100 mark.
