The motherboard and CPU are a great deal but I'm sure if you look around you can find good deals on some of these parts or similiar.

Abstract's list with these modifications:

Newegg.com - Western Digital Caviar Black WD6401AALS 640GB 7200 RPM 32MB Cache SATA 3.0Gb/s 3.5" Internal Hard Drive -Bare Drive
$64.99
Faster, and has a 5-year warranty

* AMD Phenom II X4 945 Deneb 3.0GHz Socket AM3 95W Quad-Core Desktop Processor HDX945WFGMBOX
* ASUS M4A785TD-V EVO AM3 AMD 785G HDMI ATX AMD Motherboard

Combo Price: $217.98

Newegg.com - XFX HD-577A-ZNFC Radeon HD 5770 (Juniper XT) 1GB 128-bit GDDR5 PCI Express 2.0 x16 HDCP Ready CrossFireX Support Video Card
$149.99
Same price, but this one exhausts the heat outside of you case.

Bumps the total by $8.99 ($593.93), but gives you a much better CPU and a faster hard drive.

That card isn't nearly as good as the ones we suggested but it's a good deal and that case will work for you.

It's essentially the same savings but with loss of performance and you lose the savings in the mobo deal but it could work

Sometimes you have to stop trying to rub a nickel into a dime and just take the plunge. It is better to spend a few extra bucks and get quality parts than to mess around trying to save a few cents.

Yeah I understand that but I'm only willing to get if there are big savings pretty much.

This seems like a great price for a graphics card, $35 after rebate. I know it's not that great of card but I don't think I need more.
