And now to blow your mind away:

If you keep questioning thermals, you should get an aftermarket cooler. If you're going to question if you can install one or not, then use a stock cooler.

EDIT: Actually wait, Intel's stock coolers are an exercise in frustration and paranoia to the max. Get an aftermarket cooler that's secured with screws.

All disc drives are screwed from the side. Remove the side panels and viola.

I must say, something does scream at me here saying "you're not quite ready to buy and build". Go to school on "how-to" do this via Google and Youtube. Then come back in a week and we can get somewhere productive.

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.a ... 6814161426 GPU

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.a ... 6817182277 PSU

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.a ... 6820148656 Ram

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.a ... 6813157335 MotherBoard

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.a ... 6811147153 Case

i need to read up on the motherboard little it looks nice so far but i haven't read any reviews about it taking low volt ram

all i need is someone to look over it to see if there's any conflict with parts

if not all i have to do is hope it won't change in $ by 15th of feb or so should be getting the computer together by feb 18th also it's my b-day then :)

Awwk! Capitalization exists for a reason! It's a tool, don't be one, so use it. Capitalization is the difference between helping your uncle jack off a horse and helping your Uncle Jack off a horse.

Nix that psu for the x650, if not in your wallet then get this Antec ECO @ $30. Probably the best deal I've ever seen on a fantastic >600w power supply! Also, and this will be the last time saying it, don't get luv struck with bright colors and fancy designed heatsinks...they are useless. Get the Magic ram, nothing compares. These Ballistix's are not 35nm process and their benchmarks put it on the slow end of comparable modules.

I have seen that a couple of times, just have to edit the driver profile and raise the idle clocks on core/mem - for some reason they are too low default and cause flickering and even crashing in extreme cases.
