Waiting for my motherboard

Well I have everything. I went with a sexy Asu GTX 560 Video card instead of a Radeon. I spent a little more on it but I read that it had good overclocking for a little extra boost.

Anyways, now all I am waiting on is my motherboard. It was slapped in the mail on Tuesday, and I should have had it Wednesday but I have a forwarding order to a PO Box, and now I have to wait extra. So I won't get it until at least this next Tuesday.

This is frustrating, but I assume its well worth the wait.

Also, I decided to invest in Logisys 15" Cold Cathodes.
I got blue, sound activate ones for my case. I hope it looks great!

Lastly, I was thinking of either buying a heat sink for my CPU, or to buy a nice sound card (no more than $100 though) because I love music/movies/cinematic experiences in games.

Which should I get?

Update on the computer

I have purchased a few new items for my rig.

-NZXT Tempest 410 Elite
-a few assorted fans
-i5-2500 + DH67BL motherboard combo (I know, i5 was just the best option for me financially)
-XFX RADEON HD 6770 (if there is a better choice for similar money, let me know)
-Corsair Vengence Dual Channel DDR3 RAM (4 x 4gb = 16gb)
-Raidmax Hybrid 630W PSU

I'm just carrying over my HDD, but I will be getting an SSD for a boot partition in the near future.

What do you all think?

Building a new computer now. I just got a brand new video card. I also just ordered a new power supply. I'm looking for a good case now.

What are the general opinions on the NZXT Tempest 410 Elite?

That looks promising. I would then buy a motherboard, and I am still shopping for one.

Does anyone have any tips?

First post

Welcome. I hope you find this interesting enough, and I look forward to writing more as I get into the groove of blogging.

About me:
I enjoy technology, as well as music and sound systems.
Odd interests, I know.

Anyways, look for my next post about something else completely random and useless.
