switch out that PSU for something like this...

PC Power and Cooling Silencer Mk II 750W

Or this...

CORSAIR Enthusiast Series TX750M

There's various brands and styles of RAM you can get. I'll list a few. Kingston RAM is just bland to me in my opinion. Try this...

G.SKILL Sniper 8GB

You'll want RAM without tall heatspreaders so it doesn't interfere with your heatsink.

Here's a cheaper cpu cooler...


I'd recommend this mobo...

ASRock Z77 Extreme4

Put all the extra cash you saved from the heatsink and other changes towards a better GPU. Something like this...

GIGABYTE GV-R787OC-2GD Radeon HD 7870


GIGABYTE GV-R795WF3-3GD Radeon HD 7950

Good luck! :)
