ASUS P8Z77-V PRO LGA 1155 Intel Z77 HDMI SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX Intel Motherboard

Pros: This motherboard has awesome features and the wireless adapter works wonderfully. You install the wireless adapter onto the board by screwing it in next to the USB ports, and then you connect an antenna (which is included) to that connection. The antenna is about 3-4 feet long and magnetic, so if theres a metallic surface you can stick it sideways, upside down, however you'd like. The WiFi GO! allows you to use the antenna as an access point, so if you need other devices to connect wirelessly, they can connect to that. The Fan Xpert is great at monitoring your chassis and cpu fans and customizing their settings. The Auto Tuning for overclocking works wonderfully, so if you're new to overclocking the software will do it for you (you have options of Fast and Extreme) and it does it well. It's a great way to learn and familiarize oneself with overclocking so you can eventually to it manually for better precision and customization. So many other neat features are in this MB. Highly recommended.

Cons: Some software is a bit useless, such as the Virtu MVP (uses both graphics card integrated graphics). It makes games stutter more and the performance boost is almost nil. Installing the software isn't mandatory, so you can just uninstall anything you don't need or like.

Rosewill CHALLENGER-U3 - Black Gaming ATX Mid Tower Computer Case - Dual Front Mounted USB 3.0 Ports, Three Preinstalled Fans: 1 x Front Blue LED 120mm Fan, 1 x Top 140mm Fan, 1 x Rear 120mm Fan

Pros: This case is simple and easy to connect to the MB: 3 fan connectors (2 of which require 4 pin-peripheral), an e-sata connector, front audio connectors, USB 3.0 connector, and of course the front panel connectors. The case has great ventilation (the front is made out of strong mesh) and the fans work perfectly with very little noise. The front fan has a nice blue light to it that gives it a neat look. The bays are extremely easy to use: just remove the mesh bars whenever you plan on installing anything inside, and stick it in and plug the removable sides back to keep it firmly installed. It comes with an SSD converter to easily install an SSD to the internal bays. The space inside will allow graphics cards with a maximum length of about 10.5. I have this case alongside a Asus P8Z77-V-Pro, and they work in harmony beautifully. Highly recommended case.

Cons: None that I can think of.

Other Thoughts: It's on the smaller end for an ATX case, so if you're looking for something really big, this case is definitely not going to do it.
