I was about to buy all my parts but the cooler was discontinued. ARCTIC COOLING Accelero XTREME 5870 VGA Cooler For ATI Radeon HD5870

Any other reliable websites to buy from? Possibly a different cooler.

EDIT*** Never mind I used a little tool called google duh and found several websites

I went with NZXT TEMPEST EVO Crafted Series TEVO-001BK Black Steel / Plastic ATX Mid Tower Computer

Just seemed like a better buy I'll take my chances if it fits or not haha either will have to return the case for another or pick out a different cooler I haven't bought it yet. I'm going to wait for the case to get here and then measure it out.

Here is some pictures from what I've done so far... I still need to buy the graphics card cooler. Question: How important is the cooler for the graphics card it already has a fan on it (and the case has 6 fans)?

Graphics card cooler

Pictures so far....

a cooler for the graphics card is really a luxuary thing 90% of people dont cool their graphics card more than what comes stock.

the stock cooler gets the job done, and thats about it.

if you want to overclock the graphics card, you are goign to need a better cooler.

So I have it all connected but the DRAM_LED red lights continuously. I tried the MemOK tuning also fails the light wont shut off. If I am correct that means the RAM is installed incorrectly or it isn't compatible? Here is the LINK to my exact build any ideas what is wrong? I also bought LG led 22'' E2250 for my monitor I tested it works but for some reason it's not displaying anything it's blank screen... possibly because of the RAM error light on? The exact vendor model for ram listed in the asus motherboard was: "G.Skill F3-12800CL9D-2GBNQ and -4GBRL which are both 2GB(2 x 1GB) mine is F3-12800CL9T-6GBNQ(2GB x 3) would this make that much of a difference?

Here are updated pictures of my setup showing the light that is on.

Weird thing though is the monitor displayed the BIOS the very first time I turned it on ever since then the red light is on and the monitor wont display anything. I've tried everything any ideas...
