Thanks SugarJ, what a great review. My mind is made up on the HSF, Vendetta 2 for sure. Although it sounds like installation will be less than exciting. Ah well, it'll make everything else that much more satisfying.
Thanks Dwayne, that gives me a bit more confidence
I really don't know a lot about the RAM. When i first started this build, i was thinking about going DDR3 at 2000mhz, but from what i've read, that would be total overkill and a good waste of several hundred dollars. So i figure i'll go DDR2 for now, and by the next upgrade, i guess it'll be DDR9.5 or so and i'll see what the budget allows for at that point.
