EDIT: LOL! You allready built it. You should have got the 5850 or the 6850 but oh well
would love 2 have a better graphics card but both the 5850 & 6850 are over my budget. According to this review, the 5770 is the best in its price range.

It is not bad at all. With the mobo out, just remove the stock amd retention ring and install the Xigmatek crossbow mounts (they come with the 964) in whatever orientation you want - I recommend the orientation I have so that the airflow goes out the back exhaust and not into the psu. It mounts just like a threaded intel heatsink with the crossbow kit
It's so little!

Inwin has been making quality cases for years.Not always the best features for overclockers-but all of their cases are good quality.

SSD is no go in a $500 build

I'd not plan on overclocking in a micro atx case either

Get the x3, a $50 mb (no ocing will not matter the phase), F3 for $55 is a great hd option, 4 gig of cheap ram, and whatever gpu you can fit in the price

Dude, you can easily overclock in a mATX setup.......people do it all the time. So that shouldn't be an issue. If he wants to overclock, he can.

no rebates,

edit; But I kinda agree, the biggest things you want on a gaming rig is CPU & GPU, all the rest doesn't matter. I'd be looking for cheapest quad core at least, and a good 6850 or something 450GT or something like them. Rest of everything else can be cheapest around.
