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

I got other stuff already like hard drive ect...
Is there anything I can change to lower the price but doesn't ruin performance.

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.

this should provide more than enough power.
Is PC Power & Cooling Silencer MK III 600W 80 PLUS Bronze sufficient for my build?

This is what I would go with without any decrease in performance and kept a white full NZXT case.
