Are you coming from nothing or do you have some parts for reuse?

120 GB SSD.

A cheaper monitor and power supply/case.

I agree with the above. I'd get a 23" 1080p monitor instead since it has better pixels per inch.

You could leave the headset out of the budget for now and cut back on the case and PSU - those would be my suggestions. You could get a HAF 912 and a TX650 and save $125 there. You could also cut out the $110 on peripherals and get a cheap keyboard and mouse for now, and get the expensive ones later on. Those would be my suggestions.
