Default Re: Final Component List

Go with this heat sink instead. It comes with TX-2 already which is a bonus. - Sunbeam CR-CCTF 120mm "Core Contact Freezer" CPU Cooler - CPU Fans & Heatsinks

Along with one of the video cards listed. The 4670 is a decent lower end/entry level gaming card. But the 9800 GT and 4670 performance gap is a substantial amount to justify the price tag on the 9800 GT. - GeForce 9800 GT, GeForce 9 series, $75 - $100, Desktop Graphics / Video Cards, Video Cards & Video Devices, Computer Hardware

9800 GT's for under $100. Considering they compete with my 4830, its definitely worth every penny.
