  1. Well if your not overclocking then you can just stick with the intel one. You could always buy a cooler master hyper Evo as its a bit better for the budget and will keep ur system running a bit cooler and quiter if you prefer. I don't have any problems with the stock coolers but thats an option if you want.
  2. Try these parts.
    Total is just under $1100 here in America. I'm not sure what it will be there. But these parts will do you better or just as well as what you picked. Best of luck.
