You'll save money if you buy on newegg. Also, you don't need such a high end mobo, especially if you aren't ocing. The gpu and the psu are especially overpriced from that site. And no need to spend that much on a mobo.

well getting it from newegg would work out more expensive for me as I am from australia and that is in australian dollars as well.
And what other mobo would you suggest then? if one comes to mind

Just a cheaper one that is Asus, Gigabyte, Biostar, or Asrock. Perhaps eVGA, but theirs are usually on the pricier side.

That one is fine as long as you don't intend to add a second graphics card in the future as it only has one PCIE slot.

And no, you don't need an aftermarket cooler.
