should i also get better case fans? or any other fans other than just the arctic freezer 7?
No Thermaltake PSU's are not recommended until the Toughpower series. The RP550 comes with a higher recommendation than that one.

The RP550 is an excellent PSU really as long as you have a well ventilated case which the Centurion 5. No problems there man I was going to get an RP550 for myself until I was offered an Ultra X-Finity in a trade.

OK, thanks. I didn't switch, I was just looking at newegg and looking at other possibilities and just wanted to get some thoughts. Might this monitor be better? I don't know how I feel about the others built-in speakers.

OK, I will go with that one than. I am all ready to go, I think. My brother is helping me build an awesome sound system and everything so if I need a sound card, he will help me with that. *Is nervous* I'm going to order my parts in an hour or so.

LOL. Thank you for all the help, everyone! I'll return the favor by helping others where I can. But I think that all this was the easy part... I've never built a comp before.

Do I need thermalpaste or anything?

The thermal pad, that comes with the Arctic Cooling Freezer 7 Pro, is already good enough. So you don't have to really worry about that.

I just ordered most of it. I decided to hold off on ordering the monitor and CPU until I get my next paycheck, but I ordered everything else. Will post pics upon arrival and build completion... with many more questions in between!

Hershey? hah! you live near sora and i :P

well good luck, just be careful, read a lot, and dont force anything in... but the ram sometimes needs to be pushed in, but be careful you dont try to put it in the wrong way, theres a notch that meets up with the mobo... i have the same mobo and so do many others, its a VERY good overclocker. tell me how that psu is, im thinking about getting it.
