What case are you using? What about GPU?

edit: I ask because that's a full ATX mobo, and for an HTPC, mATX is usually plenty, and GPU, just asking because 790FX has no onboard video. A 785G or 790GX is plenty for normal HTPC use unless you want to game on it and are using a seperate video card.

got this card on the way http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produ...GIGABYTE_GV-R485MC-1GI-_-14-125-258-_-Product I was looking at the 785g motherboards(and will still probably go with one-liked the features of the ECS 1 http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produ...3135241&cm_re=ecs_785g-_-13-135-241-_-Product , but for some reason it's already deactivated on Newegg's site) Just saw the Foxconn board with a $40 price drop and free shipping-I know its overkill and I would definitely have to rethink my case.

Just noticed you have a 785G HTPC in your sig already.. Not happy with it?
