Budget Build chopping prices

I'm on a tight budget and trying to cut the prices as much as possible, I'd like to keep the cpu and gpu. http://pcpartpicker.com/p/hr833C . Any feed back is appreciated, thanks.

There is nothing to cut unless your willing to lower performance. You can go with a older non-k i5 and drop the CPU cooler. Non Z mobo. A 290 over the 970, etc.

I can't consider a PC built specifically for gaming over $800ish a "budget build".

As much as I'd love to have a wired connection id have to run a cable across a hallway down some stairs and around a corner, or bust a hole in my walls.
