Updated build, need advice before buying parts

I have one last question. I updated the motherboard as after reading reviews I saw that the board I just added to my build is a bit better reviewed.

I'm going to buy this starting tonight. Any thoughts would be appreciated.

Want to thank everyone for their help.

You don't need the soundcard, one is already included. You don't need the CPU cooler as your CPU is not for overclocking. Your graphic card is out of stock and that case looks expensive.

Thank you for taking a look:

meant to remove the sound card and cooler, forgot.

the case is the size it is because I will be adding more components and wanted to have the space for later.

I swear I picked a graphics card that was IN stock. sigh will try to find one in stock.

Thank you for your thoughtful feedback.

Okay, updated my build:

In this one you included, why the mid-tower case? I kind of like the larger full-tower case. There is about a $30 price difference, but I want the extra room in the full-tower.

Honestly full tower isn't needed. The extra room doesn't confer any real advantages unless you're getting 4 gpus and a bunch of hard drives.

Thanks, after getting rid of the CPU cooler I came to the same price with the full tower case. I will take a look at both. I am going to be adding a few more hard drives over time.

I do appreciate your advice. Will take a look at your build too.

Okay, took all your advice, but am keeping the full tower case and lowered the video card to the cheaper one I had originally:

The price is about $200 off what the other builds were before.
