its a nice upgrade but not a necessity.
I'd suggest the CM 690II advanced over HAF anyway, but mostly cuz I find haf ugly.

and yes to the above question, the mobo should come with 4 sata cables.

How does this build sound to everyone? It will be for gaming and basic stuff, and a little photoshop work, but nothing big.

well i already ordered the corsair on black friday and it had really good reviews so. right now i have ordered everything but the cpu and the gpu. would there be a better option for maybe 100 dollars more for that. so 500 for the gpu and cpu is my budget.

if you want a single GPU then no. 6870 is the way to go.
if you'd like you can get two 6850's and CF.
that'd be = $525 for 955be, and 2 HIS 6850's.

can the asrock 870 extreme 3 do crossfire. and i was reading about the 6870 and it says it need 2 slots, will it fit with a haf 932 and that mobo. and lastly is that a decent mobo or did i make a horrible mistake?

yes it runs dual 8x8x. yes it'll fit in your case, its huge.
and the mobo is fine.
Why would you being buying something if you didn't know if it supports CF or not :p

well i didnt know if i was going to use it or not so i bought the mobo and if it did tthen great if not no big deal. also do you thing i should go for a ssd or get like another hdd or 8 gb ram. for the 500 dollar budget with the 6870 and 955.

theres $85 after the cpu and gpu. So not enough for a SSD.
I'd get 8GB of RAM out of those options. Although my first option would be to run the two 6850's.
