Reviewing my custom gaming build/motherboard question

Hello. I have asked 3 separate times about a gaming desktop build for a Cooler Master Elite 430 case and I have finally compiled the final list. http://pcpartpicker.com/parts/partlist/ If that is not every thing I need for the build let me know so I can figure out the total cost. (I do have a monitor) One questions I had is, on the motherboard.. I get the message, "ASRock Fatal1ty Z87 Killer ATX LGA1150 Motherboard has an onboard USB 3.0 header, but the Cooler Master Elite 430 ATX Mid Tower Case does not have front panel USB 3.0 ports." Any ideas on what motherboard I could use that won't have that issue? Also, I will be overclocking in the future.

    EVGA GeForce GTX 760 2GB Video Card - This won't work?
  3. Improper link, people are getting their last viewed builds.
  4. Yea that was my last build update your link so we can take a look at it.
  5. My apologies, still new to this. Hopefully that fixed it?
  6. Edit: Oh, I read that error message wrong. The case uses USB 2.0 front pannels and the motherboard lead is 3.0, so you would need a USB 2.0 (case) toward 3.0 (motherboard) adapter or to use a different case.
  7. I would get samsung 840 evo 120 GB ssd over yours as i have 840 pro 256gb and they released new software for it it doubled its speed its called RAPID and overall its one of best rated ssds.

    I am on a budget, however there is a small amount of wiggle room. Do they make an adapter for that issue?

    What exactly does a Solid State Drive do? Decrease start up times? Also, would it be that much of a difference for $20 and would it affect gaming?
  10. SSD is the same as hard drive but 10x faster as far as difference in speed you probably wont notice it but samsung ssds are manufactured with all samsung parts inside it and is generally one of best rated ssds.

    I gotta say, the Samsung SSD looks pretty nice. However, does it come with screws? and would I need to buy a bracket for it? (Just read 9 or so reviews and those were the top issues, no issues about the quality though which is amazing)
  12. Bump - (No idea if I need to do this) Just noticed it on other pages.

    Start up times, load screens, and installs.
  14. Alright, that answers that question. Now the last two would be does the SSD come with screws and would I need a bracket for it? (Could I also get the size of screws I would possibly need? Just a guess) Also, is the adapter I mentioned the correct adapter for a 3.0 USB motherboard to a 2.0 USB case. (The case doesn't have 3.0 USB slots)
