For ram I would go with the G Skill 8gb set = http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16820231428
for the color scheme and very close price to the kingston ram,
I also need a modular powersupply, I can get one that is 550W if I can find one, I think that will be ok, but It has to be modular,
So the CX wont work
the 560ti is a boatload of money lol, its really expenive and for what I would be using this computer for, the 5770 would be just fine

Thats right, build it for what your going to do with it, he said LIGHT gaming, so whyd you sugest the 560? Also your going to get way OVER 4.0ghz with the 212 (evo is like the new one + is the older one). With a hyper 212 evo i can see you getting 4.4ghz easy, h80 and your pushing 4.7-4.8 or more. The sbs overclock like a dream, as do the bds, thou there still alot slower clock for clock. I personally think that it will be years before you ever stress a 2500k at 4.4ghz and that would make the 212 evo (better the +) the best bang for buck. But hey, if you want water cooling (and the h80 IS water cooling) then the h80 is still a great deal

+1 to the Hyper 212 EVO also. I look at it this way. The performance is similar. But the Hyper can't as easily break. If the fan stops working, well you can still use your computer while you wait for your new fan. The H80 pump breaks? Well, what are you going to do then?
