Random Questions/Comments:


Is that case big enough for everything to fit inside of it?
Will everything stay cool with the fans pre-installed in the case+the cooler master hyper 212 plus?
Are all the parts compatible with each other?
Whats the different between the i5-750 and the i5-760?



P.S. Would ati offer a better price/performance? i'm looking to upgrade to sli/xfire in the future

This will be my first build and i am a little confused with just about everything.

Thanks in advance!
