I'll be using 'The Chief' for gaming/video editing and there's an audio recording upgrade in it's future.

The Chief's Guts

CPU: Intel i7-3770k ... on hand

MoBo & RAM combo: ASUS P8Z77-V PRO LGA 1155
G.SKILL Ripjaws X Series 8GB (2x4GB) 240-Pin DDR3 ..... $199.99

Video Card: Galaxy 67NPH6DV5ZJX GeForce GTX 670 2GB ......... $339.99

HD: Western Digital WD Black WD1002FAEX 1TB ......... $149.99 - $40.00 (Instant) = $109.99

SSD: SAMSUNG 830 Series MZ-7PC128B/ WW 2.5" 128GB SATA III ......... $110.99 - $6.00 = $104.99

CASE: Rosewill THOR V2-W Ganubg ATX Full Tower .......... $349.98 - $110.00 - $15.00 = $224.98
PSU: Rosewill FORTRESS Series FORTRESS-750 750W

COOLER: ZALMAN CNPS9900MAX-B 135mm ................. $85.99 - $20.00

DVD: ASUS DRW-24B1ST 24X ........... $24.99 - $5.00 = $19.99

Total: $1085.92 .... after rebate = $1065.92

I'm on a budget of $1300 with some wiggle room.
My other question is whether or not I should wait until Black Friday and see if some dollars are knocked off these prices.
