I need the SSD, HDD and CPU specified in this build and I need help dropping it to ~700-800. Also, should I buy now or wait till the 4th of July for better sales?

your PSU is likely too small for this build. Especially if overclocking you will crash. Buy a bigger PSU, not much to really change here other than lowering your video card or motherboard. I would probably change the motherboard to a cheaper model.

Changed to a 500 watt model. What motherboard would you reckon?

keep in mind though that board has no SLI or crossfire. But if you won't be upgrading for 2 years I wouldn't worry about that too much. You'll need a new board by then anyways.
