Looking for recommendations to make it cheaper without sacrificing power, or to make it more powerful at about this same price. I can only spend about $1530 which includes shipping.

**Made CPU Change per Alvine's suggestion, still under 1530 budget!** Any other suggestions?

That is a Corsair PSU. It's not the best one they make however.

For $1500 you can get way better than a GTX 660TI. The Hyper TX3 is no better than the stock fan. Also the Sabertooth is way too expensive and isn't the best motherboard you can buy. No reason to pair it with a 2500K either. Too much money spent on peripherals also - get cheap ones now, you can get the good ones later on.

I'd suggest something like this:
