Leveraging the $75 Discount on Newegg I4790K combo - hurry, deal ends today!

Newegg has this fantastic I7-4780K combo deal for today only.

Link to the deal

So, let's build a RELIABLE but AFFORDABLE PC around this deal.

No GPU, in other words, lets use just the on board graphics - people can add their own GPU preferences, and it also keeps costs down.

Windows 8.1 (so it's usable for a long time)

A fast SSD to boot and a terabyte or two to store data.

A nice QUIET case (maybe dust resistant if not too pricey) and a good cooler (perhaps a liquid and a dry version)

Reliable 1.5V RAM with a low CL that will overclock some?

A solid PSU with enough power to run at least one or maybe two GPUs - say >=750W?

Here's a starter list:
