Should be good to go Still I'd recommend a Phenom II CPU but a guaranteed extra core is better than a "maybe" core.

I don't trust "tower" coolers in the Vulcan though after my experience with the Hyper 212+ and that case. I'd invest in a low profile one if I were you.

Looks great. Have fun. Oh, the Xigmatek 964 should fit no problem.
This is the clearance in my CM310 elite (top of heat pipes are even with the psu.
It's so little!

Looks okay, good luck with that!

The Team RAM would be very decent, it's actually recommended quite often - overclocks very well. Ripjaws priced a bit higher, but they overclock fairly well too

Saphire brand 5770 promo code $15 off makes it only $5 more than the powercolor unit. Not sure if you have a brand preference.... Seems like Saphire has a reasonable rep?

Sapphire was (and should still be) a very good ATI card manufacturer

Ditch The SSD and Get a 750GB Caviar black.Get the Antec300 and some OCZ Gold 4GB DDR3-1333 and there you go.Now your build is approved.

EDIT: LOL! You allready built it. You should have got the 5850 or the 6850 but oh well

yeah it should fit, only cause for worry is in some of its reviews they mention it was an absolute mission 2 install it; but i'll manage

I was going 2 get the Team ram but swayed towards the Ripjaws after reading this review.
