Just so you know, theres no such thing as a master's in computer building. The closest you'll get is a Master's in Electrical Engineering.

And that heatsink will help dissipate heat from the quad core cpu, and yes you need it.

Well if you're not going to overclock, then the stock cooler if you get the retail boxed processor instead of the OEM, will do fine.

If overclocking, you can get the Tuniq or Xigmatek.

I recommended the TRUE before, and he mentioned, that he prefer not buying from two different places.

oh.. sorry. I didnt read all of it. because I noticed that it was all good.. until someone said tuniq..

hey builder friend... the tuniq is loud, and doesnt cool as well, and it is a pain in the butt to install. So I HIGHLY recommend the TRUE over the tuniq.

umm

overkill on the PSU, get a Corsair 520hx instead annd otherwise your fine

nice find on the Cooler there b1gapl

also do you have anyintention of overclocking? (which is pretty stupid because you get extra performance for free) I'd still avoid the stock cooler, I would still get Arctic Freezer Pro 7

Realize he's getting 2 8800gts g92

I guarantee that 520 won't be enough.

Make sure you add a second 8800gts 512 (g92) to your order xOxBaNaNaSxOx

actually forget the Corsair 520hx
Newegg.com - PC Power & Cooling S610EPS EPS12V 610W Continuous @ 40°C Power Supply 100 - 240 V UL, cUL, CE, CB, TUV - Retail

this is cheaper but better
