If you don't plan on overclocking the stock cooler that comes with the E8400 will be fine. The P5q Pro gurusan recommended is a great motherboard and I have never heard of any problems with it.

Code " SAVECAMP0908A " is suppose to drop $15 off the case. If that doesn't work go here and get it for $40 Antec Three Hundred ATX Computer Case - THREE HUNDRED - Buy.com

Also I personally highly recommend overclocking that cpu but if your sure your not going to then the stock cooler is fine. You could always put a better one on later if you decide to overclock.
