Additional Comments: I haven't decided on an audio card yet as I haven't researched them, but i can always put that in in the future. Also I'm not set on any of these parts really, but they seem a good balance. i'm new to over clocking so hoping to try my hand at overclocking with the system.


Here's what I've picked out so far. Not sure if the cpu cooler would fit in the case. Please feel free to edit or comment! Thanks!
