My System Specs


PSU is more than overkill for your needs.

The Noctua D14 is an excellent heatsink and fan combination, which is quiet. I'm not certain if it will interfere with the ram heatsinks though.
I'd personally go with the 2x4gig ram setup, but if you're looking to save money on the project, do as you wish.
The CM212+ is a good low-to-mid end heatsink and fan setup. The fan it comes with is a tad loud, you could replace them with a Noctua P12 (which are near silent) or I recommend the Scythe Gentle Typhoon or Scythe SFLEX 800-1200RPM fans for quiet operation.
If you want something in between the CM212 and Noctua D14, the Corsair A70 or Coolermaster V6GT would be good.. both of them come with louder fans stock.

Other than an operating system, it looks like you're good to go.

I'll learn to manage my anger, when people learn to manage their stupid.
