  1. if you have a local micro center. the cpu you picked out and a z97 msi mb is combo deal till the end of the month for 99.00 I picked up two for two builds and there a nice combo deal. there also the evga 600b that on sale with a rebate and the better r300 cases. there only add about 40.00 to your build but are a lot better parts.

    for your motherboard pick up the newer h97 motherboard. if latter you want to put a faster cpu it will take the newer brodwell cpu. also with your build put it a higher wattage power supply. the 450w has too low of wattage and amp rated on the 12v rail.
