Cutting back on SSD

So I'm trying to save some money on my build, and I don't think I'll really need a 120 SSD and I could use a few extra bucks. Any suggestions?

Quick before Warlock finds this!

I would cut back on the motherboard some. Since you don't have a k-series CPU you don't need to spring from Z87 unless you absolutely need to.

i would agree and the cpu you might be able to find cheaper somewhere else, do you have a microcenter near you? if so you can get a 4670k for only $200

So a http://pcpartpicker.com/part/gigabyte-motherboard-gab85hd3? A different MOBO would need SLI support,I'm open to suggestion; but seriously look at the SSD!

your ssd is pretty cheap already imo. If you don't need an ssd, then get rid of it. Like the other posters said, try finding a cheaper mobo or cpu. You might save a bit if you go for an 80+ bronze instead of an 80+ gold psu as well
