My original build I was about to order: $718.90 http://www.tomshardware.com/forum/371716-31-rate-build-...



The day of cyber monday, that same build shot up to $788 and now its $814. I was only looking to spend the 718. Any advice on what I should do? :'( 

Thanks...

What do you mean, what you should do? You mean what parts to change out to make it cheaper?

Discounts don't last forever. You should have ordered when you pieced it together. The RAM is like 20$ more, cpu is $20 more and a few others things went up, mostly probably because of discounts that were available then, aren't now.
