the grand total is about $1,200ish

im not worried about a cd/dvd drive, i should have one laying around, if not im going with a cheapo $12 one (cd/dvd player, dont plan on watching dvds the pc(thats what my tv is for lol), but some software comes in dvd format, which is the only reason i need it to have the dvd feature)

for some reason the links arnt showing in this format, so instead of having to individualy click on each link to see what the product is, i posted them in order


any thoughts and input on this build would be greatly appreciated. honestly i think it is a solid build, it might need a little tweaking tho.

i might have an older antec 750w i can steal from my old rig, but then that would leave that comp without a psu, unless i can stick this PSU in it. the reason i got the 750w in the first place was because the old psu that came with my other case wouldnt fit into the mobo, but if this case psu fits into my old abit kn8 sli mobo than i might swap them out (gave my dad the old rig, so hopfully he isnt too attached to the PSU that is in it, even tho he bought it for me, but the rest of the pc i purchased including the monitor should be more than an even trade lol considering i spent $1,200 on the rig i gave him, and he spent $250 on the PSU)


but if i do get a new psu i would have to get a different case or save money elseware on the pc, since i cannot afford to put any more money into the comp, i would just have to swap out parts.
 
Since u wanted to cut costs how about this config:
