As for cpu cooler get the Cooler Master Hyper 212 EVO - CPU Cooler.GeForce GTX 650 Ti Boost - On your average system the card requires you to have a 500 Watt power supply unit.As mentioned the motherboard does not support sli.

If you want to be able to OC your CPU then you will need to invest in a decent cooler the suggested Hyper 212 EVO is the one to get if your looking for one on a budget..

Your motherboard needs to be improved and the best bang for buck at the moment is this...

As for a PSU you want to invest in a decent 600w PSU from any of the following companys... XFX, CORSAIR, SEASONIC, BE QUIET, Silverstone, Antec and OCZ

Don't worry about SLI at all. Look at a gugabyte or ASUS 970 chipset board.

Don't get 16gb RAM. Games do not use anything close to 8gb even. It will be a waste.

Nope, it will do nothing in games. Most games are 32-bit applications which use 3.3gb RAM. You can MAX games with 4gb RAM. 8gb is more than enough and will be for quite a while. ZERO games will benefit in any way at all from more than 8gb RAM. There aren't even any games out there that use more than 6gb RAM. Like I said 90% of games use less than 4gb. IF you play a modern game and open up task manager, you will see that only 1.5-3gb RAM will be being used at any point.

That money would be MUCH better spent on a getter GPU. That is what actually matters for gaming.

Which GPU would you suggest if you add 5000bucks to the GPU budget..??
