Default I need to lower the price on this build.

I'm trying to lower the price on this build:
Newegg.com - Once You Know, You Newegg

I suppose I can use an Athlon II 620, a cheaper case (although I don't want to), different modular PSU, etc.

I'm considering a 768MB GTX 460- But I'm concerned that it won't run the monitors I want. (1080p Monitor with a 1366x768 secondary monitor) I will be using programs like Premiere Pro CS5 and Sony Vegas.

I don't know If I'm allowed to post this but...

I would say to not get an ASUS brand Nvidia card get this...it is the same price and the core clock and shader clocks are only a little bit lower.
Newegg.com - EVGA 01G-P3-1371-TR GeForce GTX 460 (Fermi) 1GB 256-bit GDDR5 PCI Express 2.0 x16 HDCP Ready SLI Support Video Card

You can also get a better PSU for cheaper... such as- COOLER MASTER GX Series 750W

As far as cases go, I would suggest this to shave off a few dollars- COOLER MASTER HAF 912

And I would downgrade the GPU to this- XFX Radeon HD 5770

That should shave off some from that price, but still keep you at the same level of performance.

Maybe you could have a look at this case too? I'm about to get it and have been doing a lot of research on it, it's reviews look extremely promising.
