I actually live near a Microcenter and recently went there to go through a potential build in order to get pricing information. I see that the power supply above is a 450W vs a 750W. I'm not seeing an exact match for the motherboard at Microcenter or Newegg, especially Newegg after I filter the list to manufacturer, CPU Socket Type, CPU Type, and Form Factor.

 

Having seen the size of a full tower, I definately don't need that big of a case. Planning to get the Corsair Graphite 600T.

I've updated the build to change the case to the 600T and the power supply to a 750W, and I have updated the pricing to use Microcenter's prices.

What does the Asus Z97-A have as far as network support? I've got a dual-band router and was interested in trying to get my devices onto the 5GHz band.

I think it just has 1Gb/s LAN. Here's a build adding a additional wireless card.

Also, there is a new deal with the graphics card. You get a free copy of Watch Dogs.
