Nothing wrong, per se, but I'd get a cheaper CPU cooler. Dark Knight is good, Core-Contact Freezer is good.

Imageshack is blocked at work, so I cannot see the parts list. Oh well.

Ok, thanks! I will go with the Xig cooler. But now the Cavier black is sold out now. Any other recomendations for a hard drive?

When will you be upgrading next? If soon, then a 720, if not, then a 955 if you can fit it in your budget.
