Yea that's a good price for that actually. Like he said, Tigerdirect blows.

But yeah i am wondering whether to get it or not, because i'm not sure that will fit in my Antec 900 case. There's probably trays that exist to make it fit i bet or something like that.
As for the CPU overclocking, is there any program you would recommend to do it? Because i know for the GPU i did it with AMD Overdrive which comes with the Catalyst drivers.
You can stuff an SSD anywhere, literally. I used to have my old 2.5" SSD behind my motherboard tray. My current one is 3.5" and I have it on top of the bracket that holds the top part of my case together
Overclocking with software I don't recommend. Using software for a GPU is ok, but you always want to OC with your bios. Reason being, software doesn't control voltages very good at all and you can wind up with an unstable overclock.
Edit: I would also like to mention, that yes usually Intel's enthusiast socket usually has the higher performing chips. Stock for stock though, the 3770k is faster at single threaded apps like games than even my 3960x. The only way these mammoth chips accel over the IB chips on 1155 is when all 6 cores are being used.
