* Changed psu to a 650w/fully modular/gold rated psu for $5 cheaper.
* Took out sound card as the gigabyte onboard performs on par with cheap sound cards.
* Used the saved money to change gpu from 760 to a r9 290 which is much more powerful.
There are a lot cheaper wifi adapters but up to you if you need that one.
