Here are a few suggestions:
Think your motherboard is overkill, should be able to get great performance out of one that is cheaper. I changed the build to the z77 chipset extreme 6. I like these boards.
I changed your Sata hard drive to one with 64mb cache. To help it run faster. The one you have now is 16 mb(this didnt reduce the price. I just think its a better option)
Changed to a cheaper power supply for you. Antec is a great Manufacturer and you wont have anything to worry about with them.
With some of these changes i was able to get it down almost 200 dollars. Without sacrificing any performance.
Alright, thanks guys, I used some ideas from both of you, and managed to drop the total price by about $200. A couple other things, do you think it'd be worth it in my case to invest in some higher speed RAM? I decided to go with the Crucial Ballistix Sport 8GB (2 x 4GB) DDR3-1600 Memory for $43.99. Also, is it worth it to use windows 8 over windows 7? price isn't an issue, I can get either for free.
It's not worth spending more on higher speed ram, the performance difference is null.
The crucial ram is fine.
I'd get the windows 7 home premium 64 bits, also make sure you're getting it free but in a legitimate way.
