was wondering if anyone could take a look at the build and see if there is anything in there that could be cheaper, or improved upon while still being in the budget

Unable to view another person's shopping cart... But I can say that you have a pretty low budget for a gaming rig. You may want to wait a month or so and save up a bit more as a good gaming rig is around 900. Also Intel will be releasing their Skylake processors soon which may drive down some other processors. Also you can try a site like pcpartspicker.com to list your parts as they have Newegg as a vendor and can easily list parts.

The system doesn't look bad but looks like your missing an Operating system / DVD drive / and if you can squeek it out a SSD will really make a speed improvement.

J_Slaughter,

 

Here is my recommended computer build.

 

I selected a newer and updated technology motherboard, better power supply unit, larger hard drive, and faster CPU.

 

 
Motherboard: MSI Z97 PC MATE ATX LGA1150 Motherboard  ($100.98 @ Newegg) 
Video Card: EVGA GeForce GTX 750 Ti 2GB Superclocked Video Card  ($139.99 @ Newegg) 
Case: NZXT Source 220 ATX Mid Tower Case  ($49.99 @ NZXT) 
Total: $681.91
Prices include shipping, taxes, and discounts when available

Just an FYI if you do choose Buzz' build above you will STILL need an operating system adding about another 100 dollars.

G'day mate and welcome to the Bleeping Computer forums! Based on the Newegg list provided, all components on the list should be compatible, although the only change that you could make is upping the ram to 8GB by adding another 4GB stick because there are some games that can easily exceed the 4GB of ram, and cause potential performance drop.
