Sounds like a good plan, then.

Looks a good build. The only thing I would say is that you might find the SP120 HP fans a little loud on 12v, so you might want to get a fan controller.

Would 16GB of RAM really be worth the extra money? I would be able to add another 2x4GB kit at a later date if it becomes more useful.

Depends on how much you mulitask. Personally, I hit around 9-10GB playing a game, firefox tabbed all the way out and running an HD stream/movie. Its not a bad idea to start with 8GB, you should still be able to run everything without using a page file.

I like Vengeance memory. Still have my 2 x 4GB 1600MHz kit from my very first build. Just sits in a bin now but you can never have too much spare RAM sticks right? redface.gif

Im not sold on having the radiator on the bottom. I really wanted to set up a push/pull configuration and I couldnt make it fit on the top with the resivor facing up as reccomended. The way it is the hoses are really close if not touching the heat pipes on the GPU and that worries me longterm. Also I dont like the cable situation with the PSU and radiator so close. I am think of either just moving the radiator to the top and doing just a pull configuration or taking a dremel to the top and cutting out a notch for the radiator resivor to come out the top.

I think your concerns are from you over analyzing things. I'd be more worried about not getting enough efficient air flow from having the radiator at the bottom opposed to everything else you are thinking. redface.gif
