MOTHERBOARD:http://www.tigerdirect.ca/applications/SearchTools/item...

PROCESSOR: http://www.tigerdirect.ca/applications/SearchTools/item...



Are rebates actually possible(as in do they actually send the rebate) or is it just a scheme to lure customers? Will they send me the rebate within 1 month of the rebate filing or should I just avoid rebates altogether?
Am I missing any components? Do I need more fans other than the ones already provided with the case(3 120mm)?
Do I need a separate fan/heatsink other then the one that comes with the cpu?


Price before rebates: $912
Price after rebates: $812

I still want to make it more cheaper any way I could do that without sacrificing any performance? I am not looking at overclocking the processor anytime in the next year but wouldn't want to downgrade to a 4770 locked.

I know this is a long list to review so thanks in advance!
