I'm going to spray paint the Armor on the mobo and the PCI slot thumbscrews white, and the PCI slots themselves red. I'm just not the best with color coordination, or aesthetics.

Also, should I get an i7? I mean, it's fifty more dollars but then I'm also fifty over budget. I would use it for some mild to moderately heavy business stuff, although I'm sure the i5 I got packs a punch too.

Before anybody flips out about the PSU being way too much, I am planning on going with a 3-way SLI in the future, just not now.

Thanks for the help!

well this is my opinion, get a Z97 motherboard (better upgradability) as it will be compatible with intel upcoming broadewll chip. Get the 4690K (devils canyon) newer chip.

The only problem with the Hero is that it does not have that armor that I want. I really wanted the Hero too. I might have to go with the Formula VII and just bite the extra cash, but I with it had the white tips on the PCI Ports. Basically nothing is perfect and I will never be satisfied
