I am sure this been asked numerous times ..

But , I will be building my new comp soon ..

here is my list which I will be getting :
mb = Asus p6t v2
cpu = i7 920
case= cool master 932 HAF
hard drive = WD raptor 300gb w/partition win7 64 + winxp 32 (reason is because of some older games I like that will run on xp )

artic silver 5 thermal compound

now my questions :
is a cpu cooler needed with a modest oc of 920 to 3.2 or 3.4 oc ..... if so recommended ( thinking of Mugen 2 ) ??

Corsair Dominators, DDR3 1600, those are probably the best choice ( not the most price efficient however )
