I don't like IDE that much either but your drive will work the exact same and a round IDE cable isn't too bad at all really. I guess I just don't see the point in paying the extra cash for one is all since it's not really that much better to have SATA.

Great choices...those are the best combination, for a bang for your buck, cooling solution, for the CPU.

i know a store that is around $10 bucks cheaper on each item but you won't save much so i won't bother, but if you live in the GTA area then it could save you a lot on shipping.

I wouldn't even buy other thermal paste. What they put on the Arctic Freezer 7 stock is really good stuff...unless you plan on lapping your cooler which is a good idea.
