My System Specs


1. No oc, 6 sata ports, USB3, USB2, I'd get this one: MSI Z77A-G41 ATX LGA1155 Z77 DDR3 2PCI-E16 2PCI-E1 2PCI SATA3 DVI HDMI CrossFireX USB3.0 Motherboard
2. Carbide: USB3 ports on case; USB2 ports are on the I/o board panel.
3. PSU: Silverstone Strider Gold ST55F-G 550W ATX 12V 80PLUS Gold Power Supply Active PFC 120mm Fan
4. I never use DVD players, nor Blu-ray in any of my rigs. I have an external DVD (Samsung) that uses USB ports when I need one.
5. Get the cheapest ram since you will not be oc'ing. Also, I would opt for this SSD (our resident SSD guru gave it some great marks): SanDisk Extreme 240GB 2.5in SSD SATA3 SDSSDX-240G-G25 Solid State Drive

Ethernet port is part of the motherboard. Simply use the cable you mentioned.
