My case I plan on getting is the midi r2, and it comes with a feature that I could plug in a usb 2.0 and still use my usb 3.0, just with usb 2 speeds, will that be good or what?

That will work fine, if you don't have any USB 3.0 perifs there's no reason to shell out for a board that has it...and it's hard to find an $80 board with 3.0.

Yeah, if your budget was higher that board is the one i would suggest, we'd be happy to look at your build, go ahead and post it.

I already have hard drive, and for my gpu I have a 630, which isn't the greatest. Since I am on a tight budget, Ill be getting the 7850 a bit later.

Ok so even with a 630, I should be good for awhile?
