IIRC Newegg charges you tax in california don't they? I've tried to get stuff from other stores, and there's other places to get them from if it does say Newegg.

It's slightly over budget, but worth it IMO

Oops... My bad. See what you can afford to cut and then get the cheapest DVD you can. I would suggest a Pentium G2120, as they're still pretty powerful.

Honestly, I think I can wait until Black Friday. Maybe with deals I can even get better parts. Thanks for your build, I didn't know a build like this could be done at this price range!
