Here is a list of parts I have currently spec'd out:
Intel Core™ i3-3220T Processor, 2.8 GHz w/ 3MB Cache BX80637I33220T
MSI Z77A-G41 w/ DDR3 2800, 7.1 Audio, Gigabit Lan, 2 Way CrossFireX
G.Skill Ripjaws X Series 4GB PC3-10666 Dual Channel DDR3 Kit (2 x 2GB)

Samsung SH-222BB 22x DVD-Writer SATA, Black, OEM
Bitfenix Outlaw ATX Mid Tower Case
Corsair Builder Series CX430 V2 Power Supply
Canon PIXMA Wireless All-In-One Inkjet Printer (MX432)
