Where Can I Cut Costs In This Build?

Hello, I'm LiamKawa. I also go by Ian PK, if that's what you wish to call me by. I signed up really just to ask your opinion on my PC build. This will be my first build, and I'm kind of a n00b at this stuff. Here's the build I have so far: http://pcpartpicker.com/p/yxpNgs Where can I cut costs on this, and still get similar performance?

EDIT: Also, if you think this is the worst build you've ever seen, please let me know. I may be cheap, but I don't want a crappy computer.

the mobo doesnt support 2400 memory natively so not really work overclocking it and voiding warranty.you can go micro atx with this.
