A friend of mine asked me to put together a part list for him. He's looking to buy everything by this Tuesday. I realize that some of the parts had promo codes that expired on 7-14-13 so I'll have to find alternatives in the morning, but I thought I'd post this here in case anyone had some better / cheaper alternative parts.

He will be buying the OS at his university since it's cheap.

Also if your looking for a lower noise system I would go for a Gigabyte GTX 660 with wind force cooling, as there near silent and if you want to you can clock the crap out of it without needing extra cooling.
