I'm doing something wrong with this list

I want a gaming PC for $600 budget. The problem is I have this list of the parts I took a day to select and I think I made it too expensive:

http://pcpartpicker.com/p/h6yPqs

What should I keep for that list and what should I replace that wouldn't be a big deal, in order to keep good performance. Also, please critique me because I used PC Part Picker and I did SOME research to try and understand what I was doing, but I'm not perfect at it. I Made sure I got the right amount of RAM (8GB; 2x 4GB) for a gaming comp, an SSD with a lot of space because that appeared to be recommended, and a fast processor.

What should I take out that doesn't need to be there? I want to reduce the price by $300 so that instead of $1000 its maybe $700. Also, any recommendations on stuff I could do better when editing my list?

- The CPU comes with its own cooler, you don't need to buy an extra cooler.
- The Motherboard has a wired Network card, so you don't need one extra wired network card
- The mother board has a 7.1 channel sound card, so you don't need an extra sound card
- The case shouldn’t cost too much because because its only the user preferences($25 max in my opinion)
- Since its for gaming External HDD wouldn't be necessary, because performance would depend on the USB.
- The SSD is 2.5'' which you will need an adaptor(Also remember data when your SSD crashes is permanent not recoverable).

Thanks. That cut a lot of money off of the list. And also, I'll need an adapter you say. Do you mean like this one:

Thanks for helping. It really feels good.
