Literally none of your links work that's probably why you have had no input thus far.

All your links don't work however I have a lancool case. Specifically the K58W and it's amazing. I got it BNIB for a steal at $59+tax. The K57 looks pretty cool though and it's $59.

If you're going to get a 975 though why not get a 1090T? They're both the same price and you get 2 more cores. Although they may be slower you should be able to OC them a lot since they're both Black Editions.

EDIT: That MSI looks pretty cool but why not a 990FX board for $10 more: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16813128514

As for the build itself..... I'd probably get an SB right now but with the potential for upgrading to BD it's iffy. I'm pretty neutral on AMD vs Intel but if faced with the exact same thing from both companies I would go AMD.

Unfortunately I can't really make any recommendations here, none of the links work!
However, I can speak for the K58-W. I used to own one! It's completely tool-less features allow for easy put-together and installation, great for a new PC builder.

Don't do it, Now is not a good time to get an x4 975 & a 890FX board.

Can you make it a few more months? Ofcourse can start buying some things now like that Enermax PSU, the Case if you like it.

^ Agree. Wait for Bulldozer reviews. If they don't look good (I hope this isn't the case), then don't bother with the 975 or AMD and just get a 2500K for the extra $40, you won't regret it.

Yeah, this pretty much. If you're interested in buying now, use a lower budget Am3 placeholder such as a Phenom II x4 925 OEM for $80 shipped. And get a fully AM3+ compatible motherboard. The 890FXA-GD65 is partially Am3+ compatible (AM3 with beta bios), but you can get a fully compatible Gigabyte GA-990FXA-UD3 for the same price.

Also, DDR3-1333 CL8 at 1.65V... poor performance-price, and likely not to overclock as well as this DDR3-1600 kit for a lower $33 shipped

You could get a Hyper 212+ for a little bit cheaper, plus you get free shipping. Between the CCTF and 212+ it's comparable however I've trusted the CM 212 for a lot of builds I've done for people.

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16835103065

If you want to spend a bit more you can get the Ninja3 and put it in push/pull configuration, it's a pretty good cooler for the price but price/performance wise the 212 takes the cake IMO: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16835185147

Also like I said above, since the 975 is a BE chip you get unlocked multi so there's no point in spending more for 3.6 Ghz when you can get a 965 or even 955 and just raise the multi. Plus most if not all 955's are C3 stepping these days so it's easy to OC them.

If you're going to spend that kind of money on a chip though why get a 1090T instead. They're both the same price and you get 2 more cores plus there are lots of reports of people being able to take them up to 3.9Ghz if not 4Ghz.
