Also for the CPU cooler I need to get, what socket cooler do I need to get?
Sorry I know it's a noob question but I am a noob.
Thanks again for any advice
Intel LGA775. If you decide to use the Xigmatek s1283, spend a few dollars - about $6 - to get the back mounting plate. The S1283 uses the Intel pushpin HSF mounting system. Many of us (most?) do not like the Intel mounting system. The mounting plate gives a more secure mount, especially for something that is substantially larger than the stock Intel HSF.
