Another quick couple of questions:
-Anyone know anything about the ASUS m5a97 r2.0? Is a decent Mobo?
-Anyone know anything about the Thermaltake Chaser a31 snow edition? Is a decent case?
The Asus M5A97 R2.0 is a very good motherboard. I don't know about the case, sorry.
I've seen a few videos on this case because I am also interested in buying it. Looks pretty good, I heard the cable management is great, and the blue strips up in the front can be repainted if it doesn't fit your color scheme. I like it. Good case for the money.
It's a great motherboard. that's all i can really say about it :).
I have that board in my build with a AMD FX6300. It works fine and does everything I need it to.
