Curious as to why you say that, better cable management?
Yup, Just personal preference really. I like to have a tidy PC with as little cables on display as possible and good airflow, not really a major issue for OP as the case he/she has choosen has ample space for cables. I just think its worth the bit extra $.
you could use the $75 saved to buy an after market cooler and an optical drive.
I don't really need an optical drive. Actually, the one I had stopped working since I didn't used it once in 2+ years. More of an USB guy I guess.
Since I live in Colombia, my pool of components is restricted. At first I actually had my eyes set on an ASROCK P67 extreme4, but I just couldn't get it here, and after importing it would actually cost me the same as the ASUS P8P67 pro...
Same with the EarthWatts, I don't really benefit from the newegg savings and specials. I'd had to pay the $ 139.99 stock price.
BTW, it looks like I may have a problem.
Seems like both the HDD and the GPU I chose are currently out of stock.
I may need to choose different components then.
Could you recommend me a similar product (performance and price) to those I had in mind? I don't really have a preference brand or chip-wise (either Seagate or WD is fine for HDD, same goes with AMD or Nvidia for GPU).
