I am looking for a problem free Intel mobo; http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx...N82E16813128375 was suggested to me but I like to get as much intake as possible. So what do you guys think, good enough? This will be for a gaming rig but I don't plan to overclock.

I will be putting the 5870 X2 in it when they are released since this will be a build in progress. I still can't decide on HX or TX for PSU; is the cable management worth the extra 50?

Get this case with the TX. http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx...N82E16811129043 It will be good for cable management.

You can't go wrong with either case. They are both excellent cases.

Argg.... If I get the Haf I will be replacing the fans but I feel it has more air flow... I won't be water cooling... tough choice.

Take advantage of the amount of RAM it allows, and it supports the i7, which is a huge bonus. I'd also hook up a few more Hard Drives with that board..

I'm getting http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx...N82E16819115202 and http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx...N82E16820227365.

I plan on using the Caviar black 1TB; why would it be better to go with more?

Same memory kit and HD I used in my build.

As far as running more drives, that's your choice. Personally I ran a RAID0 setup for years, but then "big" hard drives were 40 gig and were slow as heck. I run a single drive in my systems now and have no complaints.

I am a retired Ford tech. Next to Fords, any computer is a piece of cake. (The cake, its not a lie)

3770K @4.5, Corsair H100, GTX780, 16gig Samsung, Obsidian 700 (yes there is a 700)
