Yup, I second AMD Radeon's point. The TIM that comes with the 212 Evo will work just fine.

If you're interested in saving some money, you can go with a Seagate Barracuda 1tb drive instead of the Caviar Black. You can also get the ASRock Z77 Extreme4 instead of the Extreme6. They both do pretty much the same thing.

And if you plan on doing SLI/Crossfire, I would suggest you up the wattage a bit on your PSU. A 750 watt PSU would be a good safeguard.

If you're interested, I'm sure we could make a few more tweaks and fit a SSD in the budget as well. This will make your computer overall far more responsive.

ok great, otherwise DuesAres build seems great

except, as he said, possibly add an SSD, the 128GB samsung 840 series is a good option to think about.
