You could cut the storage in half, but you might want to switch the gpu and cpu. The rule on tomshardware is the gpu should always be twice the price of the cpu

Also could you recommend a GPU and CPU? I prefer intel+Nvidia, but you know whatever's cheapest.

Replace the very expensive old graphics card with a Radeon 7850 for about $5 less
and increase the game performance about 30%

Then drop the psu to a 520 watt model which should easily have enough grunt
Antec NEO ECO 520C $40

The 1866 MHz RAM voids the warranty on your processor . Use 1600 MHz . You wont see any performance decrease

That saves you so much you can afford a case that isnt totally hopeless . The gamma really is a a very poor case
At that price you can get a Corsair 200R
Or spend as much as $50 on something like the HAF 912

And if you are really desperate for an nVidia card [ why?]
then make all those savings , buy the 200R case , and drop the cpu cooler
and get one of these for $209

Are you going to overclock or not? If not you could easily save a good $100 by dropping the CPU to the i5-3470, drop the fan, and the motherboard to an H77.

How good do you think i could over clock it to? I can probably get away with what i have, but the lower it is, the more games i can get. Also, i think i should overclock because of how low my graphics card is. Whats your suggestion?
