IMHO you are going over the top with the CPU+mobo setup when you should focus on the videocard. Radeon HD 5670 is lame compared to your cpu+mobo, you put together a 550$ setup paired with a sub 100$ videocard? Like I said before I would go core i5-2500K plus a powerful videocard. But you did not say what is this for? Like for example video and or photo processing, it would be fine. It is always very important to specify what is the main purpose.

for surfing and gaming, you wont see a difference from the ram increase. But for 40 $, I agree it is cheap. What is the price differential for the hawk and regular vesion of the 560 ?

I have everything you listed in option #2 but the HyperX ram. For the ram I went with the cheaper 8GB Mushkin Stiletto. In terms of real-world performance, there is no difference between an $80 kit a $200 kit.

All of these parts are working fantastic for me.
