Thread Starter 
I am planning on upgrading my current rig and have a few components that I would like to get. Let me know what you guys think.

CASE - http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...-160-_-Product

CPU Cooler - http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...-065-_-Product I am not to sure about the cooler is there something that is better for a little more? Not looking to spend $80 or else i would get WC

SSD - http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...n=c300&x=0&y=0 (Not sure about this one, what you guys think?)

MOBO - Not quite sure, I want to be able to CrossFire, Have USB 3.0 - Sata 6 and something with decent mosfet cooling so that I can OC this puppy.

Hyper 212+ is only worth it from buy.com where it is much cheaper
Try ASUS M4A79XTD EVO

Yeah I wasn't necessarily going to buy from newegg, just the easiest to link to. Most my parts I will actually buy from Amazon since I get 3.99 over night shipping. Thanks for that suggestion

Also the motherboard doesn't have sata 6 or usb 3.0

Recommendation for the case. If you are gonna spend $130 or so, look at this one. Way better build quality than the CM stuff, and I like CM. Red powdercoated interior .

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16811112268

Mid tower, but designed to fit atx with crossfire (even comes with a bracket to support the GPUs.
It's so little!

The M4A87TD EVO is a pretty good choice, though I wouldn't call it the best for the price.
The M4A88TD-V EVO is a pretty good choice too, as is the similar M4A88T-V EVO variant.

There is also a K62 with a black painted interior. It's basically my case (K58W) with the black interior, slightly different window, and fans included.

Yeah, that is my favorite case there. That will be my next purchase (or a better GPU), but figured the op wanted red. I prefer the black interior as well, and you can always change the color of the fans to suit. These look *****in' in that case: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16835233035
