Default Re: Help with building new gaming system !

Go with a standard 5850, since 5870s are only $50 more then that XXX version.

You also won't need that "spot fan" or the ram cooler, they won't make a difference really.

Then the h50, I'd just get a standard heatsink, since you won't get much out of that tiny rad and pump.
Any of these would be great.
CoolerMaster Hyper 212 Plus CPU Cooler [RR-B10-212P-GP] - $49.00 : PC Case Gear
Xigmatek Thors Hammer Double Layer HDT CPU Cooler [21XT-THOR] - $74.00 : PC Case Gear

Need to buy an AM3 adapter for megahalems, and it might block a RAM dimm, but its a beast of a heatsink .
Prolimatech Megahalems Rev. B [MEGAHALEMS] - $82.00 : PC Case Gear
Prolimatech AM2/AM3 Retention Mount Adapter Kit [PROLIM-AMBKT] - $15.00 : PC Case Gear

Also need a fan for it, and jeez fans are like 3x as much in Australia as over here..
