    A7N8X boards have 6 USB 2.0, four are on the mobo or brackets, two of them are plugged into the case itself through annoying little pins

    No no no, mobo has six total, probably two of those are actually on the mobo itself, two others are on a bracket that you put on the back of the case in a PCI bay, and the remaining two you hand-wire to the front of the case

    Barton 2500 processors OC upto 3200 easily, especially with the mobo he wants

    For just your basic music/movies/interweb computer, hell... you don't even need a Barton 2500. I'm looking to get maybe even as low as an 1800.
