Total: $2,455.15 ( $200 more than the i5 build - But 2x 16 Sli support [ instead of 2x 8 ] and tri chan (3x2GB ram @ 1600 vs 2x2GB @ 2133 [ i5 build ] ) )

Need some opinions.

i5 build vs i7 build.

Also cpu coolers

Current Choice: CoolerMaster V8 CPU Cooler
PROLIMATECH MEGAHALEMS REV. B CPU COOLER = $10 More than V8
Prolimatech Super Mega CPU Cooler = $30 more than V8

Which is better?
