Just go for 8gb. And the 2500k, since you're only gaming. Go for aircooling only. Noctua DH-14 is pretty good, and it's pretty silent

Honestly you could downgrade to 2500k, the UD3 mobo and go with 2 570s.

Depends on what you want to do. WC can be a whole new hobby on it's own.

If you don't want to do a full water loop your best cooling options are:

Thermalright Silver Arrow
Noctua NH-D14
Megahalems Prolimatech
Corsair Hydro H70

etc etc.

isnt my setup already good enough to play 1920x1200 games on highest settings? the reason why i never go SLI is cause i feel like it cramps up my computer and less airflow. Plus that would mean i would have to also upgrade my PSU. Whats the difference between the i5 2500k and the i7 2600k ? isnt the i7 faster?
