That's actually pretty good. Keep in mind you have $40 in mail in rebates there so it's going to be closer to $500 when you make the buy.

Also, remember to leave room to pay for a copy of Windows if you need it.

You'll be fine. All that means is that your motherboard supports USB 3.0 but your case won't have any. It won't impact performance. You'll still have 3.0 ports on the back of the case that go straight into the motherboard.

The second build isn't better and should only be considered if the first is out of your price range.

Okay thanks I'm getting the first one. Also if the front panel of the tower doesn't have usbs will the motherboard fit, just making sure for my first build
