+1, I use Newegg mainly for the ease of finding components. Always a good idea to shop around for the best price.
I suggested these parts because they were the best available at the time to keep you under budget and still do what you wanted.
That being said, even over the course of 4 days things can change.
MB: $150 MSI P67A-GD65 (B3)
$10 less up front, lose the $15 rebate. Get a faster 2nd PCIe 2.0 slot which is nice if you ever decide to run a 2nd GPU.
RAM: $45.5 G.Skill Ripjaws X 1600/CAS9
The Mushkin was cheaper at the time, now its up to $46.5, either is a quality choice.
PSU: $55 Antec NEO ECO 520w
The Corsair dropped to $65, so the Antec is $10 cheaper up front but you miss the $20 rebate and need to get a power cable for it.
Point is, things like price and availability will always be fluctuating, gotta just stop at some point and pull the trigger.
Also, need to decide on a case
