And in all honesty SSD's are fantastic but I would get better components first then add one later on when you have extra cash.
Well I'm hoping evga releases a micro atx because I just saw on their micro atx for 1156 there is actually a pci slot above the first pci e. Also after thinking about it for the past couple hours while watching weeds. I dont need a SSD waste of money for my purpose.
By the way thank you for all the posts you have been very helpful. Will be repping everyone here soon for all the great help.

as for case try finding Cooler Master Elite 341 case (http://www.coolermaster.com/product.php?product_id=5426
) - this is by far the cheapest solution for the cooling ability u get. u can place 4 120mm fans in there. the only mini case i know with such huge potential. hope it helps!
Thanks for the AMD suggestion but for now I'm an intel guy. That case you posted is great. Did you see that blacked out HAF they have for $149.99
Random question for you OCNers how high of an over clock do you think I can get on the stock cooler? I don't know why but stock heat sink over clocking is fun. These chips still have that 100c limit and 105c for xeons?Edited by RAFFY - 1/9/11 at 10:39pm
