(Generated by PCPartPicker 2012-07-30 13:01 EDT-0400) you keep your power supply and use your 160GB HDD as a secondary drive use your existing 120mm fan as a second fan in the 370 case the H77 motherboard is much cheaper than the Z77, and works fine. the CPU Cooler is unnecessary in this build m 0 l tomjgum1 July 30, 2012 5:41:38 PM i really dont want micro atx due to the fact i want to upgrade video cards later on to sli m 0 l Related resources Building my new Q9550 system - Forum building new system: wat cpu: q9300 or q6600 or E8400 - Forum Just a few q's on this new system I'm building - Forum Building new Q9300-based system - your inputs please! - Forum building a new system. lotta q's... - Forum Can't find your answer ?
