  4. You could even spend a little more on a mobo.

    Perhaps the ASUS sabertooth Z77?

    Other than that, I think the above poster gave you a great build. You could even knock off some unnecessary stuff to reduce the price anymore. But with you're budget, I don't see why you'd need to!

    EDIT:

    Also, if you like the above poster's mobo better than mine, it's about $30 cheaper on newegg right now.
