CPU Coolant Fans - I would recommend http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16835109125 Thermalright 120. I have it in my system, and works like a champ.

Oh yeah I knew that, but from everything I've heard the Heatsink that comes in box with CPUs are not the best.

They are plenty fine on the X2, Unless you want to get into EXTREME overclocking.


I would recommend this drive over the Western digital drive

Its $10 and much faster

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16822148144

and if you dont want that one this one is $5 more and has 8more MB of Cache than the WD u picked (but i would get the seagate)
