I am trying to bring the price down to about 1200$. Is there anything I could do to help that out or improvements I should make?
Get a motherboard from microcenter (see the intel motherboard bundles) to save a little and get a good mobo.
You could get a single gtx 980. Less performance but cheaper and room to upgrade later (which would could save more money in the long-run)
Are you getting that RAM for looks? Its kinda expensive.
If you get things when they are on sale, you can save a fair amount as well. But it means ordering parts over a longer period of time. I've been getting parts since about 1 week before black friday and I've just about finished (just need to get a graphics card and get the processor/mobo from microcenter... neither of which will get any notable sales)
