Also everyone in here is in love with the Hyper 212+ heatsink.

The Hyper 212+ is awesome. I've never used a aftermarket heatsink before,but the 212+ was fairly easy to install. EA650,a very solid PSU with plenty of cables.

Is there any point getting a Phenom II if your just going to upgrade to Bulldozer anyway?

AM3+ motherboards should be out before BD itself comes out.

What i would do is get an AM3+ mobo when they come out (which should be fairly soon) and just throw in a cheap Athlon II X2 for the time being, that'll be plenty to run anything reasonably well and it doesn't cost much either, then use the money to save up for BD.

And as said before, if you want to use the full potential of BD when it comes out you should get a better GPU (assuming your rig is for gaming), I'd go for a 6870. A 6870 is enough to max out any game on the market currently by itself (on single monitor setups), and when combined with a second 6870 it does better then 2x5870's and better even then the 5970.

When talking about AMD only thing better then 2x6870 is 2x6970. And considering that a 6870 is less then 200euros, it has a lot of bang for your buck.

Also, as said, get a better PSU. A Corsair TX650W V2 is what i would get for that build.

As for the cooler, i also recommend the CM Hyper 212+.

You can get a Hyper 212+ for very cheap. I got a refurbished one off the Coolermaster Store (EU) for 12euro and it's basically like brand new.
