Here is a link to what I'm planning to get. Not a whole lot of room as far as money goes for this thing so I opted out of getting a ssd and a cpu cooler for now, but will be getting both when I have the money. Any suggestions or criticism would be appreciated thanks.

if you are planing to oc your processor later.....i strongly suggest you get the extreme4. it is much much better than the extreme 3.

of course if your budget permits.

this psu is equally good and will save you a couple of bucks:

how much better? It's only $20 so I'll probably pick it up either just wondering how much of a difference it'll make since I can save money on the psu for it anyways.

extreme 3 has 6 sata3 port while the ext 4 has 8 (+1 e-sata)

ext 3 has 2 pci-e x16 slot while the ext4 has 3
