$700 Gaming/General use build.

I had a list made up yesterday, but Newegg ran out of stock on some things. I will most likely be buying the items tonight. I would like to keep it around $700 or less for all components listed. Currently the one I have listed is $755 before MiR, so if there is some fat to trim, I'm open to suggestions; or if you guys think I should suck it up and fork out the little bit now. I kind of have my heart set on using the SSD as the main storage, which the smaller size shouldn't be an issue because I manage my storage regularly.

So, I'm guessing the silence means no objections?
