I'd ditch the sound card. That also puts you under the 850 budget, instead of being right over it.

Indeed.. Really no need for a sound card these days

Though even with it I'm still seeing it as ~$809

Hmm, my page shows $873.90. That's odd.

Perhaps your preferred merchant list is messing with it? I see it'll go for whatever is the lowest in that instead of pulling the merchant of the list

I just re-enabled all merchants, I had 1 disabled, still no change in price. That's really odd, but now I know it's $809 and not much higher like I thought.
