:welcome: Scarytankman10

Your aftermarket cooler, a very important thing I must make you aware of is that you do not need the additional heatsink and CPU fan and if you did use it you would void your CPU warranty both AMD and Intel are clear on this, see below;
AMD;
This Limited Warranty shall be null and void if the AMD microprocessor which is the subject of this Limited Warranty is used with any heatsink/fan other than the one provided herewith.

Full AMD article @ http://support.amd.c...earLimited.aspx

Intel;
damage to the Product due to external causes, including accident, problems with electrical power, abnormal electrical, mechanical or environmental conditions, usage not in accordance with product instructions, misuse, neglect, alteration, repair, improper installation, or improper testing;

Full Intel article available @ http://www.intel.com...b/cs-009862.htm

For gaming and a 64-bit OS you do not need any more than 8GB of Ram so you can save some cash there, the rest of the build looks good :thumbsup:

Thanks for your advice I was not aware about the warranty thing so i will just use the stock heatsink and as for the RAM i did think 16gb was a bit of an overkill so once again thank you

You are most welcome Scarytankman10 :)

I know you would like to save some cash but what about adding an SSD for your OS and your favourite game.

Crucial SSD

Yeah I was considering putting in a SSD for my OS and most played games because they load a lot faster.
