My System Specs


Unless you're doing some serious Video/Image editing, you don't really need a hyper-threaded i7 processor. You'll be more than happy with an i5 3570, and save $100. If you think you'll never overclock get the 'non-K' version, and save $10. If you think you'll ever overclock (actually not that hard to do) spend the extra $10 and get the 3570K.

I'm not sure what you mean by
I don't wanna overclock or anything (because I know nothing about it as I said before ^^), is the -3770 enough?
But I was told for that VGA I need at least 4GHz or more (on/for full HD) so I should overclock it.
Sounds like whoever told you that was feeding you a bag of ass. The processor really doesn't have much to do with driving an image on your display.

That cooler is MORE than enough for that PC. That cooler should support 4.5GHZ+ overclocks, nevermind stock clocks like you'll have at first.

Everything else looks good, mate! Good Luck on your build, and enjoy.
