Yeah, I kinda wish I saw that combo earlier, I ordered a 550 and mobo for my friend..this would have been a better buy.

Very good find, sir.

Don't get the Dark Knight with an AMD CPU. I'm almost getting tired of telling people to do this.

Quoting myself for the fifth time.

The Dark Knight has the bolt through kit, which is what makes it $10 more. This bolt through kit is 100% useless to you because you're using an AMD processor, where the lever arm which comes with both is secured to the little tabs on the stock top plate they give you with your mobo.

Intel users need to stop recommending the Dark Knight to AMD users, it is a waste of $10 or so dollars, which could be put towards a better fan for their vanilla S1283.

I am actually frustrated right now because of this, wow.

I don't understand? The Dark Knight comes with a clip for the AM2/AM3 socket, so you don't need to mount hardware. Your basically saying the Dark Knight is so good that it only $30 and is a real nice cooler. Theres no waist.

As for the person asking suggestions I the build, I didn't see the combo and edited my post.

The regular S1283 comes with mounting hardware for AMD processors.
The Dark Knight is black and comes with a bolt thru kit for Intel processors, and the same mounting hardware for AMD processors as the regular S1283 for another $10.
Why bother spending the extra $10 for a bolt thru kit you're not going to use?

Vanilla and Dark Knight have the same mounting hardware for AMD.
Vanilla and Dark Knight have different mounting hardware for Intel, the Dark Knight being better for Intel with the bolt thru kit.

Looks good, but if it were me buying the parts, I'd rather have the Sapphire Vapor 4890 for $7 more due to the better cooler. The reference cooler for the 4890 gets noisy when it ramps up. Other than that, looks good.

Edit: Looks like your card choice doesn't have free shipping, so the Vapor wouldn't even cost you more

Dude, get the Dark Knight! The black color is awesome! I heard Murderous Moppets opinion and take it into consideration, but I would still go Dark Knight for cool factor.
