    Instead of the 7870 get the 7850 which puts you at $570.

    E.G means for example and the reason it says 600-800 is it's part of the requirements to post a request to make a build, you have to go here and fill this out: http://www.tomshardware.com/forum/261222-31-build-advice The standard example is 600-800 OP just didn't delete the EG which you don't have to.
