OK, first, do u live near Microcenter?

Where are u shopping? Link ...

I would suggest to buy all at the same time. It will be cheaper and there will be a better selection.

Check this.

Your GPU's take between 106W - 170W - so yur PSU could be @ 550W total and have yet room to spare : )

The ASRock is better, IMHO. It has 8+4 power phases vs 6+2.

That is better for OC and the stability of the system.

ATX case also don't get that hot like mATX can.

And small factor is always stripped of features, as there is less space to fit them, like less SATA and USB ports, PCI slots and maybe more.

You could just downgrade your HDD to Caviar Blue and have some extra money for the more important components :sol:

The price/performance difference of the two isn't worth it for black imo..Black isn't much faster.
