Congrats on the build. Looks pretty nice.

Now get rid of that stock cooler so you can overclock it.

Looks very nice!

An aftermarket cooler would be a good idea though if you plan to do some OCing.
You'll still be able to get a few MHz on the stock though (seen 750s ~3.2) temps permitting.

Only other thing I'd say would be a sound card.

Ya i definitely plan on replacing the cooler. So far the zalman cnps10x looks like the best choice. Not sure about getting a sound card yet, ive read that it doesnt make much difference.

I'd avoid Zalman. For $70 you can get a lot better coolers. H50, Venomous-X, Megahalems, etc.

Looks like the Hyper 212+ is the same price on Canada Computers (and in stock), I'd go for that instead

Yep, if you're going to do a budget cooler it's either the CM hyper 212+ or the Scythe Mugen 2.
