Yeah, I usually don't agree with acer, but that really is a deal, and their monitors aren't bad at all.

Again, He's in CANADA. The prices will not correlate. There might not even be free shipping.

O sorry. I didn't catch that. OK. here's one. I costs a good bit more, but it is much nicer. http://www.newegg.ca/Product/Product...82E16824236053

Again, it is a 21.5 inch, but this time it is asus, who i trust a lot more than acer.

Yeah. doesn't it come with blue fans? anyway, here is the heatsink. I am working on a similar build, so just ask, and I have all the best parts laid out. http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16835702007
It says 1366, but it comes with the am2 mounting bracket, which is the same as am3.

here u go. http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16811999122
I know these are for the US newegg, but you can find them on the CA one.

OK. i will check on that.

OK. you might want to try to match the shades of blue a bit, but here is the one i found. http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16835150037
BTW, that is probably the most beast heatsink you will get for this CPU, save water cooling. I think it was able to get the 955 to like 4.2 GHz and stable.

In this order (IMHO):
http://www.newegg.ca/Product/Product...EK%20HDT-S1283
http://www.newegg.ca/Product/Product...0Knight-S1283V
http://www.newegg.ca/Product/Product...82E16835154001
http://www.newegg.ca/Product/Product...RR-UV8-XBU1-GP

I'd go with one of the first 2. AR can probably come around with a linky to some good reviews. As for me, I'm off to bed. 4AM and I have to get up for church in 4 and 1/2 hours!

EDIT: Btw, you could use blue cold cathodes to light up your case too. The 900 already has great cooling, IMO.
