That's great news. If I can recycle the case and psu, I can shift some more money to other items.

I think the CPU and HDD are fine, but maybe there is a better mobo out there. So in the dark about mobo's so many choices out there.

I know I wont be going SLI, and I want room for expansion. Hmm

Also Since I wont be overclocking would the stock cooler suffice?

If not I have read good things about the corsair H70, would anyone recommend it?

I have a

on my current cpu unfortunately, the person that built the pc for me, didnt give me the extra brackets, so I dont think it will fit my new cpu

if you aren't overclocking the stock cooler is fine. If you really want to shift more oney into that build the best things for you to upgrade are the mobo and GPU everything else in that build is super solid.
