The main thing that I am concern about is the CPU heatsink. Will it be able to fit in my case? Please note that I will not be buying these parts at newegg because of the taxes. Some items like the GPU is just there as a placeholder so that I can estimate my final cost. I am trying to get the XFX Radeon 5850 reference version and it seems like a lot of places are out. Tigerdirect seems to have it on their page, but it said estimate 7 to 14 days. Does anyone have any experience with back ordering the 5850 such as the length of your wait time? I might just back order it today just so that I can get it by the time the rest of my parts get here.
All the components should work, although I'd get an ASUS P7P55D-E Pro motherboard instead of the GIGABYTE GA-P55A-UD4P. I'm not sure if the Cooler Master Hyper 212 Plus will fit into the NZXT Tempest EVO, although it should - the Tempest EVO seems pretty big, and the Cooler Master Hyper 212 Plus stands at 158mm tall.
I have already bought my case awhile ago because it was $75 MIR and I also bought the Spinpoint F3 recently since it was $64 =). Sorry my wish list is not that updated, but that is about the only things that I have changed.
I was also comparing the ASUS P7P55D-E Pro with the GIGABYTE GA-P55A-UD4P awhile ago, but I did not noticed much of a difference aside that the GIGABYTE GA-P55A-UD4P had more ports. How much better does the ASUS perform over the GIGABYTE? I am planning to OC my CPU. I might OC the GPU when the time is needed.
EDITED: I just saw the Tempest Evo + the Hyper 212+ on someone's sig so I am assuming that they fit fine heh. I took some measurements and it seems like it barely fits and I was just trying to make sure.
