yeah, it seems they all are really out. Maybe I'll place the order with tiger since they don't say no cancellation. If something earlier comes up I will just cancel it. Thanks for looking.

Should I get a heatsink if I am planning to overclock?

Is there any particular thermal paste that I should get?

Today I began to build my PC and there is already a probelm - not enough wires! I can't believe it - I'm short both on power and IDE wires. How can this be? I am assuming that I must buy some sort of extention cables. I have no idea where to buy them (I don't want online) or what is their exact name. I know that the power plug is called molex.
For the power, I have connected two fans to the same molex. IDE was enough only for one HD (other is SATA) and now my benq dvd drive is just sitting at the top bay with no connection whatsoever.
I hope you can give me some hints as to where do you buy your extensions.

My system is the same as listed, except that the processor is 4200 AM2 and memory is OCZ gold

If you're looking in the price range of 500$ I would go with this card:
BFG Tech BFGR79512GTXOCSINE Geforce 7900GTX 512MB 256-bit GDDR3 PCI Express x16
I have an evga geforce 6800 ultra and it runs all my 3d modeling apps ( maya and such) with relative ease.
