CPU: intel core i5 3570k ~ $205 ~ Amazon
GPU: yet to be decided ~ about $200 preferably (would love a 680 or 7970 for $200)
PSU: yet do be decided ~ hopefully $70 yet still quality
SSD: yet to be decided if will be included into the build ~ $75 would be nice for 64-128gb
MOBO: Asrock z77 extreme4 (w/ 2x4gb 1600ghz PC3 12800 SDRAM free) ~ $135 ~ Newegg
CASE: Rosewill Challenger ~ $45 ~ Newegg
HD: 1 TB 7200 RPM 3.5" ~ already bought for $50
Wireless Adapter ~ $20 ~ Amazon
Logitech Wireless Keyboard ~ $25 ~ Amazon
OS: Windows 8 ultimate ~ FREE ~ perks of my job
1920x1080 Monitor ~ already have (price ignored)

btw i also have two nvidia gtx 560 ti's that i could sli instead of getting a different card, i just figured a single, better card, would be a better route, was wanting a total new build, the cpu fan can wait till i overclock, and the other cost if i do the SLI is that i will need a 850w psu, so still preferring a single card

im most likely going to have to lose the ssd anyways to cut my budget down, so without that i am at 750 and still want to drop 50 bucks, i dont have to but it would be nice somehow through a miracle

yeah thats what im saying though, after that $50 is added youre at 683.23, and then the card will put that like 900, i was planning on selling the 560 ti's or using them for something different, preferably was gonna sell them and buy a 7950 or gtx 680, but i would have to find a sweet deal.

@someone somewhere, you are a beast man, i appreciate you trying to help me out! I just really wanna stick close to what i just posted, adding the SSD later for sure, and still try to figure out how to cut costs $60 if at all possible =/ i can live with 750 and having to add the SSD later and selling my two 560 ti's(btw, how much do you think i can sell them for and where? slightly used)
