The 8gb memory is overkill but just my opinion. I have the 720 be and it is a good cpu. The psu concerns me some but then again it is your choice. The extra money on memory could be spent on a gpu upgrade. Try looking at the Scythe Mungen 2 cpu cooler they are superior to the one listed IMO.

I'd still with 4GB of RAM as well to be honest but that's your choice. I would definitely go with another HSF though.

Honestly, what do you need 8GB of RAM for? Unless you are doing very RAM intensive work, you probably won't see any substantial performance increase from 4GB to 8GB.

And also, what price can you get that TRUE for? Unless it's a very sweet deal of around 50~, you can probably do better, I believe.
