Custom computer build question? Please help!

Hi, so after like 5 days of asking questions about my build and taking other peoples advice of what to get. I came up with this final list, and I was wondering if i would need a cooling fan for all of this. Also if there is a part that is better than the one i have and is cheaper or the same price please say. I really dont want to pay more than all of this, because my parents are kind of broke and can barely afford this. Thanks !

  1. I don't have time to post links, but I will say you don't need a cooler if you don't plan on overclocking. But then, if you don't plan on overclocking why get a 2500k when a i5-2400 would be pretty dang close to the same. I would get a Cooler Master 212+ so you can do modest overclocking on air.

    You can probably save some money by buying some parts from Newegg and getting the rebates. I know that there is a Radeon 6850 for $120 after rebate.

    I'd also go read a good review on the PSU (I also think you can get a better PSU for cheaper with another brand, but I'm guessing)
  2. Hi, thanks I will go with the 2400, because i probably wont overclock anytime soon until i get a job so i can have the money to overclock myself. Also my dad told me not to buy anything with rebates since he had a bad history with them... so thats why i do amazon, and amazon has like free shipping for most of their items. Their price is actually not that much different than newegg and is even a little bit cheaper for some parts.
