Also if gaming is what you're going for you don't need 16GB of RAM. Drop that to 8GB and get a better case. Better case: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168... Cheaper, better power supply: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168... Also that cooler is junk and is no better than the stock fan. Get a Hyper 212 Evo instead: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...
