So I've been looking into building my first PC and I've been doing a lot of research. I'd like to get some feedback and any recommendations on my build. I'll be using my samsung hd tv as a monitor and I plan on overclocking since arma is very cpu intensive but nothing serious because I'm not too experienced. I was originally planning to put this into a mATX case to make it more portable but decided to go with the nzxt. What kinds of settings and fps could I expect with a system like this?

Pretty nice build - only thing I'd say is no less than 2x4GB RAM. Can't say what kinda performance exactly on those games but think it should be pretty good.

Does the 212 Evo do good on your OC? Figured water cooling would be better if I decide to over clock further and also I feel like it would look better through the window :p

I got to 4.4 in testing under 70C and still quieter than my GPU fan. Think the H80 is what most folks recommend over cheap air (don't think the H60 performs any better than an Evo - but it does look better :)
