no need to raid-5 if all your doing is gaming.

in terms of cooling most GPU's stock cooling is sufficient just higher fan speeds but for cpu id recommend a few cpu coolers, scythe mugen 2 if on a budget, cogage arrow or noctua nh-d14 for ultimate air cooling

What about cooling the GPU?
If you're talking about the gtx 480 you won't need an aftermarket gpu cooler if you have an antec 1200 or haf 932/haf x. If you want to hit some higher clocks on a gtx 480 you might want to consider water cooling. I've heard gtx 480s run like a dream on water cooling. Also, about my build list, if you have a microcenter nearby you can pick up an i7 930/920 for $200. That should give you some extra money for a monitor.

Built it cooling is fine. They run hot, but they are designed that way. Specialized gpu coolers are not used often. instead of 3 Blacks in raid zero i would get one large 1.5tb storage drive and an ssd as a boot drive.

To the OP, u do realize handing these guys 2K+ to configure a rig for you is kinda like hanging candy around a kids neck...

My only advice is try the H50 and whatever motherboard you choose, download the manual and READ every page paying special note to where your 3 or 4 pin headers are, your case leads, sata ports... where everything is . When you un-box and start your build, it will feel like you have done it before..

Good luck and have fun

The Evga 3x sli Classified is probably the second best motherboard for overclocking (second best to the 4x sli classified )

Thats great. You can save a lot of money on an i7 at microcenter. Too bad the closest to me is across the bay 1 hour and 30 minutes away .
