What I meant by my last post was I'm almost done my shopping and just need to find me a P35-DS3L. Most of the parts were purchased yesterday - couldn't purchase the mobo as it wasn't available at NCIX (would've taken a few days).

Might just pick one up locally...

Sorry if I wasn't clear.

OCZ vendetta 2 or Xigamatek HDT- S1283. They are both pretty much the same. I recommend buying a bolt thru kit for it, pushpins are very annoying.

Yup, I hate the pushpins as well. Do I need hsf specific bolt thru kit (eg. ocz for ocz) or do they make generic ones that can be used with any hsf?

EDIT: This one would probably work with most:

NCIX.com - Buy Scythe SCCSI-775 CPU Cooler Stabilizer 775 BOLT-THRU Kit for LGA775 Push Pin Heatsinks - SCCSI-775 In Canada.

I'm not compeltely sure if that one supports it but i think this one does.
Sadly its out of stock right now, you can ask around if that scythe one works with the HSF. NCIX.com - Buy Thermalright LGA775 BOLT-THRU Kit for Ultra 90/120 & HR-01 Retail Box - BTK-LGA775R In Canada.

I have a Antec 900 it is very quite overall,
I also have a 9800GT which has powered everything so far, I haven't tried anything super demanding as of yet.
