Where in Australia are you? cause I might be able to help you reduce cost by recommending other stores than MSY.

Well, I'm in Melbourne, that's why I'm looking at MSY as the closest is about 15 minutes away.

Also:

MSY Online - Noctua NH-D14

Or

MSY Online - Coolermaster Hyper-212+

Should I get a GPU cooler, as I'm going to overclock, or should the stock one be fine?

So I'm thinking of changing my GPU to:

ASUS EAH6950DCII2DI4S2GD5 - $330.00 - Scorpion Technology - ASUS EAH6950 2GB

And getting the Noctua NH-D14

This sounds perfect! The stock cooler on that GPU will be enough for a good overclock so no need to upgrade the cooler.

Yeah, I was just thinking about a GPU cooler on the 1GB version, but it seems that the 2GB has a better cooler (or so I heard) lol
