(Generated by PCPartPicker 2013-05-15 01:26 EDT-0400) $870 after MIR Outlander_04 a b ) Power supply a b À AMD a c 86 à CPUs a c 98 V Motherboard May 14, 2013 10:28:34 PM I have a very similar computer to that I would only use the Asrock mb if you will use 2 graphics cards . Other than that its not as good a board as the ASUS M5A97 R2.0 The hard drive you have listed is a 2.5 inch model for a laptop . Use a 3.5 inch drive . Even a WD blue will be faster The FX 6300 runs reasonably cool . I would suggest you check out reviews of the H60 before buying it . A good air cooler is going to be cheaper , quieter , and give you just as good overclocks Budget case Antec One gamer HAF 912 But if you have $70 then get the Antec 302 Can't find your answer ? Ask !
