Need Help Finding Best Prices!

February 7, 2013 2:10:06 AM

So I am making an AMD Money Budget Gaming build. I'm not a hardcore gamer, I just need a rig that can play BF3, BLOPS2, WoW, Diablo, Rift, Star Wars Old Republic, and my various amounts of steam games.

But here are the items I found through Microcenter, I basically want to find them cheaper and still get a warranty deal on them if possible. I know Microcenter offers great 2-3 protection services but I am trying to also save money here.

NOTE THIS WAS DONE IN Colorado, United States
I simply need help finding cheaper sites so I can save as much money as possible but get decent warranties on my stuff

So total price before 2 year replacement plan on every single item: $540.18
After adding 2 year replacement plans through microcenter: $620.50

The mobo and cpu came in a package deal, not sure if anything else better out there:

970 Extreme4 Socket AM3+ 970 ATX AMD Motherboard

FX 6300 Black Edition 3.5GHz Six-Core Socket AM3+ Boxed Processor

Ram...well is basically ram, can't complain here
Ballistix Sport 8GB DDR3-1600 (PC3-12800) CL9 Dual Channel Desktop Memory Kit (Two 4GB Memory Modules)

Video card, I went a little more expensive just cause this specific video card can easily be overclocked and stay very cool. Great rebate!
H777F1G2M iCooler Radeon HD 7770 1024MB GDDR5 PCIe 3.0 x16 Video Card

Computer Case, I don't think anywhere else could beat the price with that great rebate!

PCI Wireless Adapter, basically for college if I don't have Ethernet ports to plug into and nice for apartments

Just a nice cheap LED monitor so I can get rid of my current horrible resolution LCD VGA Monitor
SmartBuy LV1911 18.5" LED Backlit LCD Monitor

And lastly some nice 120mm fans for my case just to add some cooling power, and cheap too!

If anyone could help me out or offer better alternatives, I would be most welcome to ideas and thoughts! Thanks guys! :) 
I'm trying to get the price on this build down so I don't wipe out my pocket completely
