Thanks for the help, I tried to stay away from a really high end GPU because it will probably be used to play console ports and old games and would probably go to waste. I needed an internal SATA connector because I saw the motherboard only provided one cable for SATA, according to the review. I will take your recommendations into considerations. How much does overclocking affect the processor stability long-term (say the next 5 years)? I am considering overclocking.
