I am getting an AMD 945BE, and an ASUS M4A78-E motherboard. I believe this motherboard is designated an AM2+ socket. Would this bolt-thru kit be necessary/fit my board properly for a TRUE heatsink?...

Ok, what motherboards would you recommend for a Phenom II and DDR2 based system?

What is the best price/performance point for Phenom II processors?

Antec 300 Illusion

New Antec case on NewEgg. http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16811129066

Any feedback? Reviews look positive, fan layout looks great, and $70 price point is very attractive.
