Waiting for the GTX 560 to come out to see whether or not I should go with that for my GPU.

I'm looking to build a computer primarily for gaming, and I intend to (at some point in the future) overclock. I think it should be about $900 at the end of the day, which isn't bad, I think.

You should look into a better case if you plan to overclock.

Did some searching. How about this?

Alternatively, this has a larger width, and is cheaper:

Or will I need a full tower case? Specifically, I'm thinking about the Hyper 212.

Also, for a motherboard, I'm looking at this:
http://www.newegg.com/Product/ComboD...t=Combo.575883 or http://www.newegg.com/Product/ComboD...t=Combo.576623

Since I don't care about SLI or USB 3.0 or anything like that, I just wanna know if it's going to be just as good for overclocking purposes. As far as I can tell it should be, but then, I'm pretty new at this stuff!
