How about This?

http://pcpartpicker.com/p/Z4P4Bm

CPU: People say AMD's rubbish, but I ensure you those are just lies to glorify the expensive Intel. Not only is this cpu six core, 3.5ghz AND overclockable (most amd's are) it is also discounted! Yay :D.

CPU Fan: If you do want to overclock, then you cannot use the stock fan (seriously, you can't. Your system will get fried). This fan has been recommended by many so it will do you well.

Motherboard: This motherboard can be overclocked and can support usb 3.0

Memory: Although the RAM is more expensive , than yours the rest of the build ensures it does not affect the total price. Besides, you're only paying 3 more dollars for much better memory.

Storage: I chose that ssd because initially I would just use it for the OS, but I do not know what you will use it for so your one may be a better choice. I have used the same HDD as it is cheapest.

Video Card: The same as yours.

Case: This case comes with 1 front 120mm Blue LED, 1 top 120mm Blue LED, 1 rear 120mm, and 2 side 80mm fans. This means you do not have to worry about cooling and you also get a case with lights! There is a section on the top so that you can leave a mobile phone there.

PSU: This 650w Psu is as efficient as yours and is made by thermaltake (the hint's in the name).

Monitor: This monitor is also 1080p and is cheaper.

Keyboard: A cheaper keyboard.

Mouse: A cheaper mouse.

Hope this helps! Alan.
