Fill out form in sticky link in my sig.

You really shouldn't be using gtx 260's...They're currently way overpriced ~$190ish when they were as low as $130 last year. Better off just getting a new DX11 GPU, a la 5850.

Forget the corsair. Grab a trident kit. $190 and performs better.

Don't know which 1TB black your getting, but either way, the Spinpoint F3 1tb is a better deal. $70 for 1tb ATM, and faster than old WD blacks, and cheaper for same or better performance, than the new 500gb platter ones.

You do know those 2 kaze's will make your PC sound like a jet plane taking off right?

The Megahalem "push" fan (horizontal mount) will interfere with RAM with tall heat spreaders, and mini fans for the RAM if you have this. Mods may be necessary.
