Is $1479 a lot?

So I've this build which goes to $1859. I want a build that can play games on max settings.

Here the build

I got other stuff already like hard drive ect...

Is there anything I can change to lower the price but doesn't ruin performance.

  1. Yep,

    Get rid of that cooler. Go with air cooling.
    That PSU is good, but seems very expensive. I'm sure there are cheaper options for that.
  2. This is what I would go with without any decrease in performance and kept a white full NZXT case.
