    it all looks really good, BUT A LOT of people will burst in and tell you to change the zalman cooler for a cooler master hyper 212+ why, cuz its like 30 bucks.

    personally i think its perfect as is. dont change anything.
  2. The build looks good :) However the sound card is unnecessary - are you buying it from your friend? Or is he giving it you? If your buying it the money would be better spent on buying a slightly better GPU (6950 or GTX560Ti).

    As said above, and I will recommend it, Hyper212+ CPU cooler will save you $20 or so :)
