Honestly, the 900s are great cases for cooling, but a total ***** to work with......

Same with my 300. Great cooling but diddly for wire management. The One Hundred, Nine Hundred Two V3, Performance One Series P183 V3, and Twelve Hundred V3 all have wire management features.

so im slowing buying everything now.not too sure the order i should go in.im thinking

cpu(because it can drop in my current set up)

case(its a full tower.but i like the idea of great cooling in my texas heat.stock wires should have no problem reaching in this case right[case is 8inchs taller than current one].its my first "build")

than Newegg.com - Suggested Products card at same time.

so would going in this order be the best?

Yha, best to buy parts that are usable as you improve/upgrade.

Either CPU or case first, so you are thinking along the right lines. I would go for the case first as case prices remain steady but the price for the 965 will drop as the new gen CPUs start coming out.
