Alright, thanks. I found one for $14.

I also have a question about USB ports. The motherboard says it has six, and the case itself only says it has 2 ports. Is there something I am missing here?Are there 4 ports in the back and just two in the front that the case says it has? I feel dumb asking this.

The case has two USB ports that are completely separate from the motherboard. Gah, how do I explain it... Like, it's a separate USB root hub that you will probably need to connect to the motherboard. Should be easy, it usually is.

So basically...

The motherboard has six on-board USB ports.
The case has two more USB ports.
Therefore, there are six USB ports total.

Thank you. That clears up the air.

Edit: I've ordered my computer. My dad found a good deal on the dell XPS so I bought that. Here are the specs(from memory):
Intel quad core i7 processor
24 gb ram
Amd radeon 7570
Windows 8
2 tb hard drive


All for $1100
And I think that's all the important stuff.

I finally unboxed my accessories yesterday and they are awesome. My brother hooked up his laptop to everything and the hardware worked just fine. The speakers and subwoofer are something else though. We found a bass test and made the house shake. Now I'm extremely excited for my computer.
