I accidentally ordered the wrong memory, it was $2 extra for DDR3-1600 dual kit. But in real world performance there is negligible difference between DDR3-1600 dual kit and DDR3-1300 single kit. Even in benchmarks it looked like a <2% performance difference.

CPU/Memory/Storage/VideoCard => MSY

Mobo/Case/PS => skycomp.com.au

i wanted the sg10b, because it looks nicer, but i found it difficult to justify $20 for changing the front.

I chose the 600w ps because it was 140mm instead of 160mm, which helped a lot. I could have chosen an 160mm ps and gotten a short power cable kit though.
