Trying to keep it cheap

Trying to make this Build as cheap as possible with room for improvement such as an SSD and maybe next year another GPU in SLI.

If anyone can make it cheaper be my guest

Not really cheap, but whatever... :)

if you're going with a single HDD, i suggest you buy a faster one (WD Blue or seagate barracuda come to mind) instead of the slower WD Green you have selected.

I was under the impression the greens where faster than the Blues? As the WD Blue wasn’t available on the parts List.

But cheers for letting me know

greens only spin at 5400; 7200 has become the norm before the jump to SSDs. if you dont mind spending a bit more, WD Blacks are a good choice.

if youre not thinking about OCing that high, the hyper 212 cooler is cheaper than your current choice.

also, for gaming, i'd aim for an IPS display
