Hey guys I think this is going to be the final build need a double check on compatibility...

1.) How is that PSU? Is the 650W enough for this system?

2.) Should I invest in a new cooler for my CPU if I wanted to do some overclocking...anything for sub $50?

Everything looks great.

As for a CPU cooler, i would get this

It's one of the best out there for price/performance.

And with that, you would need some Thermal Compound.

My personal favorite as Arctic Silver 5 is so thick that it actually keeps the heat in.

It will have the necessary brackets to fit the i5 750/1156 pin socket.

$40 for about an extra 10% performance? I think it's worth the extra dollars.

Yep.
