also, i like how these ram cards look
Newegg.com - G.SKILL Ripjaws X Series 8GB (2 x 4GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1600 (PC3 12800) Desktop Memory Model F3-12800CL8D-8GBXM
but you have
Newegg.com - Patriot Viper Xtreme 8GB (2 x 4GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1600 (PC3 12800) Desktop Memory Model PX538G1600LLK
so i was wondering if theres any difference?
and then theres these which are cheaper
Newegg.com - PNY XLR8 8GB (2 x 4GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1600 (PC3 12800) Desktop Memory Model MD8192KD3-1600-X9

For you, the GSkill would be better. I use the Patriot for Overclocking purposes. Don't buy anything with the brand PNY attached to it.

your cpu has a fan on it now. you will be removing the old cpu and fan and installing it onto the new motherboard. Thusly you will need new thermal compound, and the cleaning kit is not really necessary. Some Isopropyl Alcohol and coffee filters will do just fine.

Yes, just take off the cleaning kit. Might be a good idea to get an ESD wrist strap as well. And go pick up a rubber place mat to do assembly on as well.
