Budget Build!

http://pcpartpicker.com/ca/p/uod3

I plan on buying these parts in a month or so I already have $550 saved up. Anyways feel free to tweak the list to make it better and preferably cheaper.

Everything on here is what I need, no need for a monitor or keyboard etc.

Budget is $1000 and less.

    It's similar to what you chose. However, I tweaked a few things and squeezed in a HD 7950. This will get you far better performance in games.

    Awesome! Thanks, I left everything in your build except I changed the case to the NZXT Phantom. (Strictly preference)
