Make sure the case has the opening behind the CPU large enough and in the right place to upgrade the coolers retention plate later.....if not then do the cooler now, much easier then removing the mobo later. I'll check on the GPU one minute.

I would consult with a quick toll free call to AMD but this looks to be an awesome upgrade for phase two!

Yeah that does look pretty sweet, decent price too. I went ahead and bought the bundle, the only thing holding me back was the CPU, it doesn't benchmark much better than the older athlon quad cores. Regardless, I've heard there are some new FM2+ chips coming so Ill be able to easily upgrade then.

Thanks for all the help, I'd rep you but I gotta spread it first.

No worries and take and post some pictures of the rig as you build and after it's done ! I think it will be impressive out of the box and then for round two major leaps. Trash the stock cooler and get a quality aftermarket for sure.

Well, there is good news and bad news.. Most of my stuff showed up! However, my case got held up in Tennessee because of this stupid snow storm hitting Georgia...





Thats about as far as Im going to go until I get my case

I have another case I could use but I'll just be patient and wait it out I guess.

So basically everything is here and accounted for. The SSD doesn't come with a mounting bracket but thats not a big problem, Ill just go pick one up. I was worried about the PSU but just going by looks it should be decent enough to get me going. The CPU fan is awful but I'll have to figure out a way to buy one without the wife complaining too much more

When I get the case I'll update again.
