Also, if you have the time, take a look to see if that PSU is compatible to my MOBO. Or maybe I am just over stressing the whole compatibility deal, again this is my first build.

Just had a look...everything is compatible, and looks fine to me.

Are you aware, that you are buying two monitors?

Nope, just one. I guess you're seeing the Samsung CD drive next to the Hanns monitor. But thanks for your help. It is much appreciated.

Oh, because it says "2" under quantity, for the Hanns-G monitor.

Another note, since you're getting AS5 thermal paste. I assume you'll be using the stock cooler included with the E4400. Clean off the thermal pad from the stock cooler first, before you apply AS5.

Ok, will do. I do assume the AS5 is better than the stock paste just for moderate OC'ing. The E440 can safely OC to a certain voltage without to much cooling needed.
