So I was originally going to build a AMD computer but decided against it. So i switched back to Intel and went abit over my budget, personally i would like to spend about $750-$800 (without tax/shipping) on my new rig... I’m at $850.... So i was wondering if there were any sales or alternatives to the parts I’m getting that would be abit cheaper, but also stay around the same grade of performance, here are the specs and links of my computer (don’t plane to over clock so I’m not going to buy a heat sink) Also I need someone to make a quick compatibility check, thanks :)

Saves you 20 bucks. If you are dead set on never ever overclocking than you could go with a cheaper i5.

Side addition, I have had great experiences with this wireless adapter : http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

Been using 2 of them for over a year and a half, never had a dropped signal and the range is really good.

and I'm fairly sure only the Z and P series boards can overclock.
