Need Help budgeting this set up

So after a little while i think i really like the essence of this build, and i will be purchasing something like this by the end of the month...

Was really trying to get the price down a little more. Can anyone see any place i might be able to cut cost without sacrificing to much performance?

  1. Why not get an FX 4300? processor?? It has a newer chipset which may help to get the motherboard a bit cheaper.
  2. Or you could get an A6 processor with a built in GPU and then get an AMD GPU and it will do something similar to cross-fire.
  3. Look nice but i suggest the $500 build in my signature.
