I wouldnt recommend the Kingston Value ram. Corsair has a value series that performs much better. I try to stay away from any "value" series of memory. It never seems to last long, especially OC'd.

Looks good. I would get a hard drive with at least 8MB buffer though

Get a Thermalright heatsink. Which one you get does not matter so long as it is compatible. You cannot go wrong with them.

Also, I second the Corsair ValueSelect memory suggestion and the at least 8MB buffer suggestion. I suggest that you get a Western Digital hard drive instead of the Seagate hard drive. The Western Digital hard drives have better performance, consume less power and generate less noise than Seagate hard drives. They are overall a much better value for your money.
