Just made it a bit cheaper but no impact on performance. :) 

The Rosewill Green Series is one of the great performers of Rosewill. Others are trash.

Well... since you obviously aren't wanting to overclock, you can change several things and save some money. Here's something under $1000 with better equal or better parts.

Could always spend a bit more on the monitor to get HDMI connectivity and still be around $1000.

skip getting a Z77 board if you're not OCing that CPU. an H77 or B75 motherboard will suffice, unless you plan to get a 3570K later and/or plan to get another 7870 to run in crossfire.

You forgot a HDD, and you need to put a tax rate in for microcenter (8% would be avg-ish).

To OP:

Do you have a microcenter near you?
