Im going to use the stock cpu cooler until i can find a better one around the 20-40$ range. Im thinking of getting the gtx 295 for a graphics card too, hopefully buy it and get lucky to use the step up from evga to get one of the new cards comin out early summer time. I have a k/b, mouse, case, burner, and wifi card already bought.

This is a good cooler, coupled with the bracket for an i7:
Newegg.com - XIGMATEK HDT-S1283 120mm Rifle CPU Cooler - CPU Fans & Heatsinks

Newegg.com - XIGMATEK ACK-I7361 CPU Cooler - CPU Fans & Heatsinks

Actually, where are you ordering from? Maybe you're not from the U.S. then you might not be able to use newegg.

With the 295, what resolution do you plan on gaming with?

Oh ok, just wandering cause you'll be using a 295. Anything lower than that res, a 295 would be a waste.

I was wondering how well the:
Newegg.com - XIGMATEK HDT-S1283 120mm Rifle CPU Cooler - CPU Fans & Heatsinks
Newegg.com - XIGMATEK ACK-I7361 CPU Cooler - CPU Fans & Heatsinks
will fit on my evga motherboard stated above because if you see the pictures on newegg the board has a big heatsink next to the cpu slot.
