    Of course if you plan on doing any overclocking I would suggest getting an HSF, although I don't know too much about them. Hopefully someone else out there can find one that will fit the 1156 socket and performs nicely.
  4. Sorry, forgot the optical drive, but build has put up a nice one. Also, the Antec 300 might do you well unless you do some heavy overclocking and do Xfire, since that will create a lot more heat.
  5. thanks for the suggestions, i think this is whatll go with unless someone has good reason to suggest otherwise. this way, leave it open for crossfire in the future.
