    thx but i would prefer to keep the parts i listed i just need a good hdd ,ssd and cpu cooler while staying in budget if possible

    sorry it took awhile to respond i forgot my password but the motherboard was my dads choice because he wanted it for the military grade parts and also the motherboard is the most important part to him
