Go with 2 2x2GB Ram. It will save $10. I don't know about the rest though.

You could always go with a and processor instead of a intel processor. Not sure about much else, ehhh, you could downgrade

Without changing the case or going to a non-modular PSU, this is the best I could do. If you really have to be below 800$, look into another case (it's currently 10% of your total cost) or "lower tier" parts.

Have you considered getting a Gtx 960 instead?

If you got good sales on everything. it is possible to get it under $800s with your current items.

You could get a 240 GB SSD instead of the 120 GB SSD and HDD if you don't really need that 1.12 TB: http://pcpartpicker.com/part/crucial-internal-hard-drive-ct240m500ssd1
