Re: Brands and Suggestions
Your choices look great to be honest. The power supply is a bit overkill, but only just so, especially if you plan on going with SLI later.
I would hesitate to pair that system with a green rated hard drive, HOWEVER, that's just because I know how much faster the non-green hard drives are. If this is your first experience, it'll be fine, but know that if you feel like it feels like there could be something more to it, then upgrading to a faster platter based drive or SSD can really help out.
Also, why the i7 960? You can do so much better with the i7 2600 or even an i5-2500. You WOULD need to change the board out for an LGA1155 instead of 1366, and drop the RAM kit to a dual channel config (which is not a bad thing by the way). But I would get the i7 2600 instead of the 960 any day.
I own the heatsink you're looking at getting (hyper 212+) and it's a freaking tank. I love it muchly.
