Default bottle neck of my own.

would by chance, this
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...=4890%20atomic (4890 Atomic)

be bottle necked by my cpu/board?


and this HSF (sunbeam)
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16835207004
would do my CPu fine?


if anyone knows better parts for the same price or a bit cheaper, post please.
um not getting this stuff asap, its just for future purchousing.
and i would prefure ATI over Nvidia, b/w will get me the absolute best bang for the buck.

i guess that looks ok... i dont really trust sunbeam products.

That should work nicely with your setup. Nice upgrade from the HD 4850.

The Sunbeam is a very nice cooler. It performs extremely well for the price. It's rated as one of the top 5 coolers for AMD on Frosty Tech.

It should be available for quite a while. I'm sure they will still have them after you get your pennies all saved up.

The Sunbeam Core Contact is a +. Make sure your case is wide enough, though.

My temps were 70'C load and now they never go above 40
