The samsung 840 ssd series aren't that great, i got you a better one. I put a lot of parts in custom because ncix.com has really cheap things. With all the money saved, I got you a gigabyte 7970 from ncix. You could get a Sapphire 7970 Vapor-X from Newegg, but it will be about $15 above your budget

Edit: Lmao, didn't read the $240 for i7 part...Fixed it with the i7 in.
