Thanks a lot! It's only that everything but the GPU comes in a barebone kit on rebate so I can't really change that part... And as of the possibility to swap the 270 for a 270X, I've heard it is not absolutely necessary, because overclocked performances of the 270 get pretty close the the reference 270X, in the MSI version (Linus Tech Tips). Any further opinions about that?

If you are confident in your overclocking skills, then yes, a 270 can be overclocked to 270x speeds. But if you can swing $230, you should consider a 280: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16814202099
