Making a new build, but need help shaving some fat

Well, I'm making a new build. My first time at it. I wanna keep the price in the $600 range. Can anyone suggest other parts I can swap around to reduce the price to that range without sacrificing too much? I'd like to OC my i5 in the build but not too extremely high. So just parts that will handle it well.

I was recommended the h100i cooler so I'll preferably stick with that but if there are better alternatives I'd be happy to hear about it. Also a moderately priced case will be nice to balance it out to the $600 range. As for the video card i plan on using my current single slot HD7750 until i can afford a better one.

Thanks in advance guys. I've been lurking the forums here for a little and I gotta say the community here is awesome. Keep the master race alive. ^

You might be able to save a couple bucks on the HDD or RAM by shopping around since deals come and go so quickly. The biggest place to save money would be on the cooler. You wouldn't need something that intense for minor OCing. Of course cooler is always better so if you definitely want that cooler then I won't argue. Something like the ever popular Hyper 212 EVO would be sufficient I would think.
