i wouldn't have gotten that ram, or that thermal paste, but not bad.

If u have not gotten the ram or paste yet,
grab some g.skill's for ram and tx-2 paste.

heatsink, hdd, optical drive, psu?

I have a hdd,optical drive and psu. I'm planning to use the Heatsink that comes with the CPU do to the reason I have no interest in overclocking.

well if ur not overclocking then g.skill ram is not necessary, maybe grab some mushkin, and if ur not overclocking then tx-2 thermal paste is also not necessary. Although i urge u to reconsider overclocking, i mean, it's free performance increases.

well then if u are willing to try overclocking then u could cut down on the os, by ordering a ubuntu, it's free. That would save u enough to buy a better heatsink and a bit extra to maybe get some better components (not that those are bad)

Last night my PC came down with a horrible virus. It makes my Internet slow And the CPU to slow down as well. Lucky we have another computer. I'm trying my best to fix. I might have to buy a new HDD.
