My System Specs

Default

Brutal, I used PCPartsPicker.com to total your build. After adding a DVD Burner & Win7HP to the build, it turns out that I should be able to get the same build from NCIX for roughly $1500. Some of the difference may be attributed to volatile part prices; according to the website, I could have saved $150-$200 on my build had I ordered it around June 10th. There must have been a sharp drop in the price of CPUs or chips or something before the price returned to "normal". Another factor is simply that I may have picked parts that were slightly higher, which then added up, like taking either the Sabretooth Z77 or the Maximus V Gene instead of your motherboard or choosing the 3570K over the 2500K.

I notice that you too put a mATX board in an ATX case, something I chided for. Just saying...
