Default PC Building, need help

Hey guys I've built this PC but it's kind of expensive and I'd like to lower the price but keep the power. Could I find the same products with the same power but for a lower price?

ditch the 2600k and get a 2500k, in gaming, you wont notice any kind of difference.

ditch the NHD14 and get a corsair A70 cooler, for half the price you get within swinging distance of the same temps youd get from the D14

ditch the HAFX, there are a lot more cost effective cases that have similar looks for a lot cheaper.

get a MSI P67A-GD65 motherboard, you wont be using the features that a Z68 has to offer, we call that " throwing away money "

and finally, ditch the 1050W powersupply and get a 850W

You can even ditch the Noctua and go for the Cooler Master Hyper 212

What if I want to overclock the GPUs or the CPU, will that mobo be capable of that, also what case should I get if I want a perfect cooling for my GPUs .

Get a single, powerful card, as opposed to 2 lesser cards.
A 7970 will deliver similar performance, but use less power, produce less heat, and will be quieter.
