1: id get a samsung 830 128gb drive instead. its not that much more

2: id get something like the xfx 650w psu instead

3; id get the asus z77-v LK board so that you can have more bandwidth for crossfire

4; might want to get some gskill ripjaw x 1600mhz 2x4gb cl9 instead so that it could fit under a heatsink

5: if you want to overclock, get a hyper 212 evo heatsink

Corsair Vengeance fits just fine with a 212+ or evo.

Is overclocking necessary?

Not really no. But getting a K model CPU is nice to keep your options open.

But why get RAM with heatsinks when they do nothing for RAM? He can get G.Skill Ares 2x4GB for $43.

Hes in the UK, I dunno from my experience Corsair Vengeance seems to be more readily available "across the pond"

The low profile corsair vengence isn't a good choice. I bought 4 and had 3/4 go bad within a week. Get the xm version for corsair.

Come to think of it, I had one of my 8GB modules go bad a week after building the computer, but my first mobo went bad a week after it (Gigabyte board), so I chalked it up to the mobo being the issue. Corsair replaced it no hassles at all though. Meh.
