That Arctic Cooling fan is a piece of junk - it's no better than the stock fan.

For $700 CAD I'd do things differently:

PCPartPicker part list / Price breakdown by merchant / Benchmarks

CPU: AMD A10-5800K 3.8GHz Quad-Core Processor ($119.99 @ NCIX)
CPU Cooler: Cooler Master Hyper 212 EVO 82.9 CFM Sleeve Bearing CPU Cooler ($29.03 @ DirectCanada)
Motherboard: ASRock FM2A75 Pro4 ATX FM2 Motherboard ($89.99 @ Canada Computers)
Memory: G.Skill Ares Series 8GB (2 x 4GB) DDR3-1600 Memory ($39.49 @ Newegg Canada)
Storage: Samsung Spinpoint F3 1TB 3.5" 7200RPM Internal Hard Drive ($79.99 @ Newegg Canada)
Video Card: Sapphire Radeon HD 7770 1GB Video Card ($124.99 @ Canada Computers)
Case: Cooler Master HAF 912 ATX Mid Tower Case ($54.69 @ DirectCanada)
Power Supply: Corsair Builder 600W 80 PLUS Certified ATX12V Power Supply ($60.99 @ Computer Valley)
Optical Drive: Lite-On iHDS118-04 DVD/CD Drive ($19.99 @ Newegg Canada)
Operating System: Microsoft Windows 7 Home Premium SP1 (64-bit) ($96.99 @ Computer Valley)
Total: $716.14
(Prices include shipping, taxes, and discounts when available.)

More powerful CPU that will give you a stronger overclock, better CPU cooler, better GPU, better case, better PSU, you name it.

The whole point of Trinity is the great integrated graphics. If you plan to get a discrete gpu, then getting a APU is pointless.

Drop $20 for the cpu and go with the AMD Phenom II X4 965 Black Edition
http://www.newegg.ca/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E1681...

With the new socket type comes a new motherboard MSI 970A-G46 AM3+ AMD 970
http://www.newegg.ca/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E1681...

While were at it this gpu get great fps on high settings Radeon HD 6850
http://www.newegg.ca/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E1681...

Last thing, save a few bucks with the G.SKILL Ripjaws X Series 8GB (2 x 4GB), same performance
http://www.newegg.ca/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E1682...

Everything else with g-unit1111's build is great. Overall price is 732.90 but that is directly from newegg.ca so there might be cheaper. Go with his parts list to for the cheaper ones.
