Cm Hyper 212 + for $30 on amazon is a better HSF.

You can get a cheaper optical for $18, no difference.

Get a USB 3/sata 6 mobo, so GA 790 UD4 for example, $140 w/ $15 MIR.

Don't get a 4850... a 5770 is cheaper and better.

Get a Spinpoint F3 instead. Much better performance $55 for 500gb, $75 for 1tb.

Use combo's and you can fit in a 5850.
