Memory: G.SKILL ECO Series 4GB (2 x 2GB)

Case: COOLER MASTER HAF X

Hard Drive: Intel X25-M Mainstream 2.5" 80GB SATA II MLC Internal Solid State Drive (SSD)

Hard Drive: Western Digital Caviar Black WD1002FAEX 1TB 7200 RPM 64MB Cache SATA 6.0Gb/s 3.5" Internal Hard Drive -Bare Drive

Power Supply: COOLER MASTER Silent Pro RSA00-AMBAJ3-US 1000W ATX12V v2.3 / EPS12V v2.92 SLI Ready 80 --> CORSAIR HX Series CMPSU-750HX 750W ATX12V 2.3 / EPS12V 2.91 SLI Ready CrossFire Ready 80 PLUS SILVER Certified

CD/DVD Drive: LG WH10LS30K 10X Blu-ray Burner

Okay, so now I have one last final question as I need help for the Cooling. Which heatsink should I get for this build?

- Thermalright TRUE Black 120Rev.C CPU Cooler (Will this fit on my board? I heard it was incompatible through a review on Newegg)
- COOLER MASTER Hyper 212 Plus
- Thermalright Venomous X (Will this work with AMD boards? Can I add a push+pull fan configuration without blocking a RAM slot?
- Corsair H50 (A bit pricey, worth it?)
- Prolimatech Megahalems (Again, is this too big for push+pull?)

And with the one you recommend, how about fans for it?
Thanks again guys!

Get 8GB. Windows 7 + programming = heavy. I'm going into network admin next year and will have to do prof for 1 year. my cousin did the class and he had 8gig and he told me if he could have got more, he would.

WHAT I WOULD DO: Get a GTX 460 1GB and get another set of ram. It's harder on the IMC but meh... the difference between 4gb vs 8gb > 3.8ghz 4ghz.

So ya getting 8gb of ram will provide better performance than overclocking with 2 dimms..

I hope you understand..
