Question Re: Building a Powerful Desktop

Alright, so I've decided to go for the $100 cheaper ASUS P8Z77-V DELUXE LGA 1155 Intel Z77 HDMI SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX Intel Motherboard. Just need one last word of approval that my parts will work with this new mobo. I will start ordering my parts from Newegg soon (they usually have the cheapest, right?) and hopefully finish assembling within two weeks from now. And is there anything else I should keep in mind about my system in the future?

Good board. All compatible. Just remember, that board has no standard PCI slots, so every add in card will need to be PCI-E.

I've been running a 120 GB SSD for about a year now and i wish i had 240. Actually planning on upgrading soon. If you haven't made the purchase yet i would definitely go with a bigger drive

Ended up getting the Samsung 830 256GB SSD instead of the 128GB version.
