hsf: there are better ones than the one you just listed for less cash. for example, as i think an alum.+copper hsf would be best, i went and found the zalman 120mm fan for 40 bucks. its bigger and provides more airflow. but thats user opinion.

your ram flat outright sucks. if your into overclocking, buy some better ram for about 20 bucks more. itll help you waaaay more than your value ram.

go with the freezer64 pro or big typhoon heatsinks, those are the best in their price categories
