My only complaint is that you are paying almost 80$ for a heatsink. You should take a look at http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

That is what is in my computer and i can say it fits barely into my Mid Case, but it does... I also have my CPU OC'd and it works beautifully.


Other than that i think you may want to consider looking for a 64-128gb SSD just to put Windows on with that budget, it will really help with performance as well as make you hate rotating HDDs (this is from experience.. ha).

128gb, great speed, nice life span. On sale for $114. (cannot beat that price)

64gb, great read speed (64 gigs is really just enough to have windows on it.. so you don't need extreme write speeds), cheaper than the 128 at $74.
