I'm looking to trim some fat off this build. Maybe shed $100 or even $200 with different parts. Also, what would you recommend for cooling?

BlueJay , what are your plans for this. Is it strictly ripping and processing or is it htpc duties. I would not change anything you have there though depending on what you are doing with it you may be able to save on the video card. I say save some more sheckles and do it right.
I am using a similar case Carbide 500R, with no window. If this is HTPC I would recommend a quieter power supply. I cheaped out and now I am going to get a BeQueit Dark Power. In my main PC I have a Thermaltake TR2 and its dead quiet , much quieter than the EVGA I bought. As for the the CPU cooler I recommend the Arctic Cooling A30 this had great test reviews and works awesome.
