You just answered my question. Thought, on initially seeing your list, that probably wouldn't be much more to use Ivybridge i3, and H77 mobo, for better performance. Used everything else, apart from RAM, the same, and came out to over $700. I was then wondering how your build was $600. I now see. Will do it again.
