  1. Would you like to over clock ?
    Do you need other parts such as a Wireless Adapter ?
  2. i would like to overclock and suggestions for a wireless adapter/other useful parts are welcome
  3. Do the colours of the parts matter and would you like a side window for your case ?
  4. If at all possible i would like the lights to match, but that is no big deal really...
