I recommend getting the E6320. It is the same CPU as the E6300 only it has an larger L2 cache and is actually a couple bucks cheaper. You have not picked out a board to put all your componants in.

While that case should provide good cooling with the room, make sure you do cool that CPU well. I recommend this one.

Those Ultra 120s are supossed to be the most efficent but I hear they can give you a bit of trouble in installation. I remeber reading something about needing to attach a 80mm fan to the side of them. If you want to keep SLI as an option for later then you might want to look at getting a different PSU. The only thing that I would change is the 6300 to a 6320 like I said before. I'm sure you will enjoy the build :whistling:.

Yes that's right, you have to put a 120mm fan on them, it says in the specifications tab of newegg. Looks like it will be a nice build!
