No HDD but you can fiddle a bit to get one in there (drop the gpu to 7850)
As you can see this was done for Canada not US.. there are further savings to be had in the US. Shop around. (eg microcentre has the 3570k @ $189)
Also why newegg/amazon? find all the cheapest prices you can and then price-match on NCIX or some other retailer that offers the service..
That setup goes over my $800 budget.
My girlfriend is actually getting my HDD for me. She wants to help a bit, which is nice.
I didn't consider NCIX. I should probably take a look.
Update: switched up some parts. Chose a different CPU, Motherboard, and PSU since I decided to go with the FX-6300.

Also, it should be noted that the optical drive and case are simply placeholders. I haven't actually went through to make a decent choice on those as they're not that important.
