No Rosewill is to Newegg like Great Value is to Walmart.

Modular just means you can remove the cables you don't use for better cable management.

How much better performance is the 660 over 650? Is it worth the extra $50?

He would have to order separately. Newegg currently has it more than the 300r which also has free shipping. Nice case though, probably the next case I use.

I really appreciate all the help. Guess I may wait to buy the graphics card to throw a little more into it.

One more question.
What would be a good heatsink for the 3570K? I may mess around with running a stable overclock.

the stock heatsink should easily take a modest oc of 10 or 15% i would think. maybe im wrong, but i would think it would be true now moreso than a few generations ago.

Nope, stock heatsink still sucks hard even for stock.

How much are you looking to spend on the heatsink?
