    that was my original plan, but im looking for ways to lower the price, do u think it will lower preformance, and because ill probably look into overclocking do i need another cpu cooler, i mean the antec 900 is known for being cool

  7. yeah it will definatley lower performance the motherboard will to an extent limit the abilities of the processor and video card (or an other components you choose to add) and secondly just ditch the antec 900 and go with the hyper evo 212 is like $30 nd will allow you to overclock to about 4.5
