Budget is somewhere around US$700-900. Main aim is compact size, all-roundedness, and wireless.
Main use is multi-media, frequent office use (intense excel) and light gaming.

So I've build this list, wondering if I could use a few suggestions to improve:

I'm looking at the possibility of ASUS GeForce GTX 670 DC . I am more inclined to use this one, but I can't seem to find it on the PC parts list.

Thanks man.
Suppose I'm looking to cut about USD100-150 to meet the low end of the budget, other than to move an H87 MB (advisable? If I am looking for durability?). Is this particular CPU cooler model loud?

Really appreciate the help.
 
Going to an H87 MB is a possibility... if you aren't going to overclock... then you can back the CPU down to a Haswell i3 and see basically the same performance. As for the cooler... I went to that cause I went to an overclockable CPU, if you back it down to an I3 you can back the CPU cooler down too.
