      I'll try to have pictures soon. I'm waiting on some money to come in so i can order me a better computer case. The one i have is ok, but the "side" USB Ports have come loose from the case, and i can't fix it. . . I'm also thinking about upgrading my processor to the AMD FX 8150 4.00Ghz.

      I'm looking at this case

        That's a very nice case! Very sleek and very functional for a high performance computer.

        Why do you want to upgrade CPU? The 8120 is very good, you should do some OC and it will perform just as good without having to spend extra money.

        Keep us posted ! Seems like a very fun build!

          Overclocking scares me, because I do not have any experience whatsoever with it. I have a "UEFI" BIOS with my motherboard. I like that alot. So easy to maneuver. If i could overclock my processor from 3.10Ghz (default) to about 4.00, maybe to 4.5, i'd be happy. I also am running the Ultra / ChillTec / Socket 939/775/AM2 / Thermal Electric CPU Cooler. It may not be that exact one but i have one like it. It works awesome, too.

            There is a wide margin for error, so as long as you do not do anything ridiculous like using 2.50V for CPU VCore, everything should be fine. Do some reading, read some people's settings and results, then you can attempt on your own. Once you get the hang of it, it will be fun.

            Thank you

              I'm not sure which one of these cases is the best

              I'm also looking at the Asus SABERTOOTH 990FX R2.0 Motherboard.

                With those 3 cases, it's really just a preference of color, the specs should be identical otherwise
