WC = water cooling (referring to a custom loop)

RAM = you had 2x 4GB kits selected (8GB), unless you really need the resources it's not necessary for gaming, surfing etc.

You can still get P180 minis, stock just tends to go in and out with them.
Amazon has them now for !

As for the SSD: 60GB will be fine for OS / programs, and a couple games, but with that size it'd be better to keep your games on another drive if you want to keep more than a few installed.
You'll be surprised how quickly you can fill up a drive that size without even getting into games (additionally more free space = better performance).

Think about a 120GB+ drive if you want to keep it all on there.

EDIT:
Just realized you're in Japan (you threw me off with the Newegg cart tho lol)
Maybe you could have someone ship you the P180 Mini?

You want to game but you use OSX?

Anyway, wc is water cooling. Instead of using fans it uses a bunch of tubes that uses water to cool your components. It is much more expensive than air cooling but it cools it a lot better if you want to reach some very high overclocks.

Usually air cooling will suffice, however.

1. if you're sticking with 8GB of ram, try this G Skill set for $90. i don't know if they're good but they are cheaper

2. i bought a white P180 Mini from Newegg for $75 on Sunday. it's risen to $90 with shipping, but they have them in stock

3. you can save by grabbing the Antec TruePower New 650W for $70 FS. not quite as good as the PSU you picked, but still very good in its own right. should you require a higher wattage PSU, the 750W is $10 more.

4. you can get an ASUS GTX 470 for $230 with a $20 MIR. i realise you probably picked the Twin Frozr II for its better cooling, but if you are willing to handle more heat, you can save a lot of money that way.

5. you can get the CoolerMaster Hyper 212+ for $125 in a combo deal with your CPU, and a $15 MIR. fine, it's not as great a cooler, but it still witll kick you to 4.2 GHZ.

as always, check for any combo deals you can use on EACH of the parts you buy, and enjoy the rig . good luck and happy hunting

Amazon has them now for $79.99 shipped!

Haha just trying to be as helpful as possible.

Though I am severely disappointed with your choice of OS.
