Hi,

I was wondering if the the GTX 280 would be 'held back' by the AMD Phenom II 940? Ideally I'd like the two to complement each other.
Also, I'm looking at buying these with 4GB of Corsair XMS2 800Mhz Ram. My point is that I don't want to be buying something that is ridiculously overpowered (or underpowered) when compared to other parts :( 
Finally, will triple copper CPU cooling be sufficient - or should I go for the Asus Silent Knight pure cooper?

Thanks in advance,

Pat

Dont buy any of those ASUS coolers, they are WAY overpriced and perform like a $15 cooler.

And the GTX280 will be fine.

agree with spath on both counts. i have an ASUS cooler and it will be in the trash can soon. its only savior is the fact my CPU runs cool to begin with.
