Looks like a good build, the only thing i question is the video card.

Who the heck is Innovision 3D? I am not saying that they are bad (I googled the name and couldn't find too much), but i personally would pay a little more for a company that has been in the business for a while, has good reputation, and warranty. (Like XFX or EVGA)

I don't see the point in paying that much for a P35 chipset board. It's not like you can go SLI anyway, and even Crossfire is crippled. Cut back to the IP35-E or any cheaper single-PCI-e slot P35 board really. I'd choose a different heatsink as well - the CNPS9700 is just outclassed in today's market, and I'm not a huge fan of proprietary fans. For around that price you could get the Noctua NH-U12P, which is a much better and quieter cooler. Or you could get a Thermalright Ultra 120 Extreme, but that'll cost you around the same as the Noctua, but you have to provide your own 120mm fan.

Chill out man... Seem's a bit biased IMO. The 9700 is a great cooler.

I'm calm, sorry if you read that as me being excited about it. I'm just saying that there are definitely better coolers on the market for the price of the CNPS9700.

Haha. I got you. I guess it depends on if he needs max cooling or if he just likes the zalman.

looks like a good build but yea to save money get a ABIT IP35-E if you don't need RAID. There is nothing wrong with Inno3D they're just less well known. In HK they are more well known.
