This is my latest project, just wondering if I could make this any cheaper or have any suggestions.
Unfortunately I can't really go anymore over my budget so I can't get anything more expensive then what I've listed.
Also can someone check to see if these parts are compatible?
Many thanks,
Frankie

Well, you don't need the k version CPU of the Z77 motherboard unless you are going to overclock which means that you will need an aftermarket cooler. You really don't need Win 7 Ultimate or a sound card either.
