Couple of questions for you. Is there a color scheme you are wanting to stick with? Red vs. blue is a fairly common one. Will you possibly be doing SLI in the future? Is there a budget for the motherboard, and do you plan on OC'ing the cpu?

Colors are not important. I'll be probably doing SLI. 250$ budget, and I plan on OC'ing the cpu.

Case, 20$ over your budget but it's a Full Tower and has good air flow.

I'd find a case that has usb 3.0 on the front panel. There are literally a ton of cases out there that will work. My current favorite is the Cooler Master Haf XB. I've used Nzxt though, and I love their brand. That motherboard he recommended would be fine too. If I had the money, I'd go with:

Motherboard: Asus SABERTOOTH Z77 ATX LGA1155 Motherboard ($234.99 @ NCIX US)
Case: Cooler Master HAF XB (Black) ATX Desktop Case ($99.99 @ Amazon)
Total: $334.98
(Prices include shipping, taxes, and discounts when available.)

I'd also throw in the new Corsair h110 cooler and hook it up the the front of that case and force air out, with the top 200mm fan as an intake.

Yeah but that Motherboard is useless and extremely overpriced.

Seems to get good reviews though. Not quite as good as the RoG boards, but not as expensive too.

Yep. As well as many Asus boards for around the same price. However, if I had a 250 dollar budget, the Sabertooth is what I would buy.
