You can have cheaper ram here : http://us.ncix.com/products/?sku=74758&promoid=1321
HDD : http://us.ncix.com/products/?sku=74462&promoid=1139
CPU : http://us.ncix.com/products/?sku=75435&promoid=1387
Ncix us offers free shipping with 100$ in the cart, so you'll get free shipping.
Also get the z75 board in newegg, it's at 75$, in amazon it's actually more expensive and the case, it's also at 50$, the rest cpu, hdd and ram get it either in ncix us.
This will go well under 750$.
