    Hello seeing as you wont be overclocking you could save some money going with a cheaper processor. yours is priced 200, you could get an i5 3450 for around 146

    Everything else looks pretty good and the drop in processor will get you closer to the 1000 mark

    Also there are refurbished harddrives for 30 cheaper, theyre still warrantied if you dont mind buying refurbed
