This is the parts list that I have at the moment: http://pcpartpicker.com/p/ALpM
I am a liitle over my budget so if there s anything I can cut down the price off please tell me but I want to keep it as a high end rig. I am only getting the i7-3770k because there is a store near me where I can get it for 230.

128gb would be fine, but fills up quick.

up to u, if u can afford 240 is worth it, i own a 240 and fills up quick.
