How does this set up look? I tried putting links, but for some reason I couldn't get them to work...
I also want to buy an aftermarket CPU cooler, because I do plan on overclocking, so what do you recommend? And then is $40 USD worth 1 inch of monitor? Haha...
I selected this one because it is modular and it's only 54.99 after mail in rebated. I don't really know too much about psu's so recommendations are good. I plan on doing sli sometime so accounting for that would be good, and the fact that I'll be overclocking the cpu.
You should not get that particular WD drive, as it is not as fast as the $5 more expensive WD 1TB FEAX drive, nor is it as fast as the cheaper Samsung Spinpoint F3 1TB. So get either of those.
What do you think about having a motherboard with SATA6G and USB3?
I think this is a really good option: Thermalright MUX-120 $47 from Amazon. As it was one of the top performing coolers in the Tom's 1156 coolers roundup, because of being quiet and performing exceptionally well when paired with a faster fan. If you think you're going replace the fan then have a look at the Scythe Yasya $55 ($7 shipping).
