  1. Looks like a very nice configuration.

    Maybe an upgrade for the motherboard to allow future addition of crossfire graphics and USB3 connectors? Asus M4A89GTD-PRO for $182

    Also, consider a heatsink to facilitate overclocking/cool performance: Zalman CNPS10X Performa for $58
  2. Not gonna corssfire because it puts me way over budget nd by the time i need 2 ill just by a whole new computer :/ Also not planning on overclocking but am probably gonna get an extra heatsink and/or fan about a cuple months after i get it.
  3. If you are not going to overclock, then you are spending too much money on your motherboard, and you should not consider a heatsink
