Do you have a microcenter nearby at all? You can get the CPU and Motherboard listed below for $289 (before tax). They have a deal were if you get $50 off when buying the CPU and mobo together. Plus their price for that CPU is $189 to start with.

Can you scavenge a DVD drive from somewhere, or borrow one just for an OS install? If so, you can shave that. You could go with this motherboard to shave a little more:

Then you might just go with stock HSF and grab a Hyper 212 EVO in a couple months and OC.

Or if you have no intention of overclocking you could drop the motherboard to an H77 and the CPU to the i5-3450 and you'll save about $120 that way (including dropping the fan).
