  1. save some money go with the asrock p67 pro3 since you wont cf also i think z68's are a waste of money because most people have a discrete gpu and ssd caching is stupid. at amazon the hyper 212 plus is 28$. hdd- go with the samsung spinpoint f3 1tb hard drive at amazon for 60$. 4gb is enough for gaming. this case i think is better-
