If you're gonna be going with SLI, I don't think you'll need the z68 for the integrated graphics (I'm assuming that's why you're getting it). A good P67 board should be fine. Otherwise it looks pretty good

upgrading my super outdated sig rig to this. 608$ before taxes...and still need a mobo+HDD
If your Going SLI, Get a really good vented case. I'd recommend The Antec 902, Or The Cooler Master HAF 932, Or a Cooler Master HAF 912 if you live in an Apartment like I do. I'd also recommend a NZXT M59, Or a NZXT Phantom. Lian Li Is a high-quality case manufacturer, And so Is Antec, Cooler Master on Certain Products, And NZXT Is just a Fantastic case manufacturer (Own a NZXT Vulcan Crafted Series mATX Gaming case).
It'll save you money, and just maybe be better In the long run. Yeah, I'd actually just get a 40$ 8GB-16GB SSD Just for booting, and get a 1TB SATA 6.0GB HD.

I'd have to agree with the recommendation of a NZXT case. I have a Phantom, and I love that thing!!

I'd spend a nice amount of money for a good quality case
Not that the k63 is bad, but there are better
