I dont think we're talking about the same monitor.
I checked out the HAF X, It has USB 3.0 on front panel and many other feautes that ARE extremely useful, do you think its worth paying 70 bucks more for it?
I also have another question, Having 3 sticks of DDR3 in a DUAL channel mobo/CPU is possible? if not, i think 4GB would suffice.
Expensive because of the crossfire support, but that's kinda a lame feature. By the time you want to buy a new card to supplment your current one it's still 75% of release price and single-GPU card with more performance is out for about the same. You could save 70$ by dropping crossfire support for a MSI-870a-55, GA-870a-ud3p, or an Asrock 870 extreme 3.
