CoolerMaster PSUs aren't really that good. I would rather go with a Corsair or Antec. Also, the HAF line is excellent.

The RipJaws X line is excellent as well.

I have almost the same setup as you. Works great!

Other than the case and PSU that I recommended above, you are good to go.

Ah sweet, I dont think theres any other Cases/PSU combo's on there, but i shall have alook.

I really like that case to, I wonder if they would Swap the PSU for a diffrent one...Mhm

*EDIT*

The cpu i picked outm apprently has garbage graphics? I will be playing W.O.W Minecraft, and mybe MW2 on it

Would the CPU beable to handle this? I may, if i can, spend an extra 60, to get the intel core i5, Quadcore CPU right?

Default Arctic Cooling Freezer Xtreme Revision 2!

So, im planning on getting one, instead of having a stock cooler for once, Im just wondering, will it fit inside the Coolermaster Centurion 5 II Case?

And, will it Keep my CPU cooler?

Aftermarket coolers do a better job than stock on cooling. I suggest Scythe or Xigmatek. There's others as well, but the ones I use most.

Yeah, it'll fit fine. It's not huge like some other heatsinks.
