Computer build 800-900$

My friend wants a computer build that costs around 800$ (not including the operating system). Here is a build i think is pretty good.

Also would it be possible to lower the price without affecting the performance? Any advice would be much appreciated.

    A b75 motherboard is designed for business machines. An h77 is preferable.
    That PSU is crap. Stick with Antec, XFX, Corsair, or Seasonic.

  5. I slightly edited your build michaelwang_99.

    added a 20$ CPU cooler, and got a slightly cheaper power supply.
  6. You don't need an aftermarket cooler for a CPU you cannot overclock..
