I do believe the 320 can handle a single gpu as well.

They will but you have to call and place your order versus doing it online.

2 options in Canada:
NCIX.com - Canada's Premier Computer Store - Great Technology, Service and Selection.
Buy Water Cooling - DirectCanada

This is the same ram you have listed in your 1st post but it's a few dollars cheaper.
Newegg.ca - OCZ Gold 6GB (3 x 2GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1600 (PC3 12800) Triple Channel Kit Desktop Memory - Desktop Memory

A nice air cooled setup with keep up with that Thermaltake case or the Big Water That kit Hefe linked to is a good choice and it would look good in the Cooler Master HAF

And Swiftech kits are good also

So the bigwater kit is a decent kit to go with the coolermaster ?

Anyone else have any comments on that

No, skip the BigWater. A nice air cooled setup can match it.

I'd rather get a Core Contact than a BigWater. Stay away from it.

This is weird...where's Aspire? BTW , if you have a tuniq tower cooling a non-overclocked cpu at 40 idle and 50 load , the heatsink may need to be reseated or even lapped.

It is summer and i do live somewhere warm.

Ambient temperature owns me

EDIT: i was actually over-stating a bit. it's 40 C under medium load with mild temps outside. It's when it's 35C outside and my pc is running at 3.6ghz 1.35 volts that i start to see temps climb into the high 50's.
