The Hyper 212 is a fantastic heatsink for the money, but I found the backplate mounting process to be pretty irritating when I used it for a friend's AM2 build. Can't really complain though, it's dirt cheap, and once you get the backplate on it's smooth sailing.

Why not get this? NCIX.com - Buy NCIX P55 Bundle Deal Core I5 750 2.66GHZ G.SKILL 4GB DDR3-2000 C9 Gigabyte P55-UD4P SLI Motherboard - 750-UD4P-4GB In Canada.

Get the Cooler Master HDT heatsink. Really, really great for its price.

Because I want the 'i7' touch of HT, thus I said no to the i5 series. That deal is pretty sweet though, I just wish they make a decent one with the i7 860 :)

They did, it sold out. Fast. I cant find a link to it, but iirc it was an 860, mobo + ram for 589?

320 cpu
180 mobo
100 ram

give or take, and no, I dont remember what ram/mobo it was. Maybe Linus can enlighten us, and give us more of them?!
