Hello guys , just wanted some feedback on my first build, here it is :

CASE : Antec 300

MOBO : MSI P67A-GD55 Intel P67

http://overclockers.co.uk/showproduct.php?prodid=MB-166...

CPU : i5 2500k will be overclocking it

http://overclockers.co.uk/showproduct.php?prodid=CP-360...

Fan and heatsink : Cooler Master Hyper 212 Plus CPU

http://overclockers.co.uk/showproduct.php?prodid=HS-029...

GPU : XFX Ati Radeon HD 6950 2GB will be flashing it to 6970 and hopefully overclocking as well, once i get aftermarket cooling. In future I hope to add another HD 6950 to it !

Check out my build guide in my siggy for a bit more suggestions.

You should look at an 8gb kit. You don't need CL7, CL9 is good enough and the speed differences are hardly noticable.

That site doesn't have the Extreme4 but this would be a better overclocker than the board you chose. A little more but hey, better OCs.

Here is one argument:

Ram is cheap, why not get a 2 x 4gb kit?

^ why the hyper 212+ saves about 50$ that can be spent on the gourmet or CPU.
