agility ssds are crap. either get a proper 128gb SSD or dont get one really

liquid coolers are crap. the hyper 212 evo performs the same

change the ram to patriot viper 3 venom

change the case back to antec 302. the 900 is at least 3 years old and does not have usb3 and good cabling spaces that newer cases do

I've been reading and in my build i was able to include a 128GB ssd but i had to lower the cpu cooler to an CM Hyper 212+ and to an i5 2500K so i was reading that the extra $30 for the i5 3570K is not worth it?

depends.

which 128gb SSD did you choose. the only one id recommend is the samsung 830. the 840 sucks just incase you are thinking about it

i dont see the point of a bigger than necessary power supply. xfx is made by seasonic = pretty much the top maker of power supplies. also makes the corsair tx units

if you want the extra stack of cables at the bottom of the case to be bigger, go ahead

antec one is 10 bucks cheaper. same features, just that the 302 is a tad bigger. like you are going to crossfire so there really is not much of a point

id wait for more stock if possible or cyber monday
