    you should get one of the coolers i posted if you want the best for your cpu the hyper 212 is a good cooler but not even in the same league as the coolers i posted trust me on this one.

    That looks pretty respectable to me.
    I think you may be able to get the 6870 a little cheaper? I see an XFX one at $170 without the mail in rebate.
