This is meant to be one of the best i7 boards on the market at the moment.

It doesn't include the tower, you have to buy that separately. I would recommend either a Li-Lian tower or Corsair tower. Like these two

http://www.scan.co.uk/products/corsa...window-w-o-psu

http://www.scan.co.uk/products/lian-...m-case-w-o-psu

You can get either a mid-tower or full-tower. Those are the two that will support an ATX motherboard. Your best bet would be to NOT get a low profile case.

If you mean all the cables inside the PC (the ones you would need for the HDD and ODD) then yes you should get two with the motherboard. You will have to get a cable for the screen and a power cable but you could probably use the same ones you are using for your PC right now. I am using the same power and screen cables from my old PC. If are talking about the cables for the PSU then yes the PSU does come with all the cables. You can't take any of them off and you can't put any on.

Out of those three get the second one. But if you are a student and you have a .ac.uk (example: example@this-college/school.ac.uk) email account then you can get Windows 7 at 30% of the retail price (only Home Premium and Professional though Professional will cost £25.50 and Home Premium will cost £20.10) You should also take the RAM down from 16GB to 8GB
