I'm a really big fan of the way this case looks, so I would like to keep that for sure, I was wondering if you guys had any tips on lowering price at least a little. Thanks.

Wow, that's insane, thanks man. With that saved money, I may actually bump up the processor a bit, would that be the right thing to do, or is there an area that needs more improvement?

Only thing above that cpu is the i5-4690K (besides i7s which isnt needed for gaming. More for rendering, animating stuff like that.) which is as high as I would go for just gaming purposes, think its like $20 more, I would for sure do that.

Oh! Will I need any extra cables or anything for power or whatever? Sorry if this is a dumb question.
