Nice, you will be very happy with that build. Even on stock it will play ANY game out there pretty much.

Have fun installing that tuniq tower, lol

What monitor, mouse/keyboard do you plan on using with your new rig?

I still dont see why people order the tuniq tower. The TRUE is so much better, easier to install, and you dont have to replace the fan because its so loud. Which g15 did you get, the version 1 or version 2?

You'll probably have to take the cpu duct off to install it.

also i think verison 2 of the g15 does not have all the programable buttons verison 1 has...

I have a g11, i picked it over the g15 cause i dont like little screens on my keyboard ^.^

Yea, i wish now that i had knowna bout the TRUE when i picked out my cpu cooler... but its all good, the tuniq is effective, its just gigantic. You will be happy with it provided it fits in your case and you dont mind the backaches from installing and lifting

Ya, for the extra hassle that comes with the tuniq, ive been trying to steer people to the ThermalRight Ultra Extreme(TRUE) 120 instead. Between the sheer size, thumbscrews and included fan, the TRUE ends up being the better bargain, plus the TRUE cools better
