Planning on ordering my PC tonight, need some help on compatibility issues and if there are different price efficient parts that I'm missing. Help me decide please!

Switch out the RAM for this:

It's cheaper and you won't notice a single difference.

Also, switch out the motherboard for either this:

or

Finally, I'd pick another case rather than a full tower.

Try something like this:

If you don't like the styling I'd look for another one like the HAF 922 as you will probably never need the room of a full tower unless you plan on going with watercooling or a 5970.

Good luck with your build!

I think I'll go with the Antec 900, it's on sale right now and I switched the RAM. Will those motherboards really have a performance boost on the ASUS that I chose already?

Well, the GD65 is a great performer and the P55A has USB 3.0 and SATA 3.0 if you would like that.
