Indeed, but I'm currently looking at multiple choices - the Cooltek K3 Evolution is different, but not in a lot of ways, someone actually says it's better - but I'm a bit too lazy to research, plus the K3 seems to be cheaper.
EDIT: Maybe you could PM me your Windows Live address or an address from any Instant Messaging service used by you, in case you do use one? You don't need to if you intend to be as 'anonymous' as possible :P

TheBetaFox,
Yes the AMD stock cooler is engineered to do a very respectable job. Any cooler will require maintenance to keep if purring along, clean it and the case interior along with the other fans at least twice a year and more often if you have dust, pets or case on carpet issues. I'll say it again as well the PSU is the heart of your system and the quality of these units vary wildly. Stick with name brands that have a reputation for reliability and do please consider up sizing this area as you will get the bug and upgrade items, ram, drives, fans, coolers, and the big one is a quality GPU which draws a huge bit of energy off the secondary rail. My advice may seem like over kill but many here will agree tons of issues here get traced back to the lack of proper power supply sizing and quality.
Cheers and good luck you will love being challenged with the build and making it your build. Please take pictures and post all during it's build and when done !

Thank you for the advice, sir.
Of course, I will share information and pictures of the build, but when I will buy it, that is I'm kinda short of money at the moment.. Oh sweet financial crisis </sarcasm>.

Thinking of going to SSD
I'm really thinking of making the jump to SSD. I have my eyes on the OCZ Agility 2 60GB. (I have the current drive and additional 160GB drive to backup all my files, etc.) Space on the other drives is NOT an issue. I'm using 42GB of 260 right now on my WD drive. I'd put the OCZ as my...

Seriously thinking about getting an SSD
I'm currently considering the benefits of getting an SSD. There are certain circumstances keeping me from getting one at the moment, but as soon as I can buy one without going broke, I plan to buy a 30-32GB one for the OS and use my current HDD for file storage. If you had to choose between the two...

Thinking about a new SSD
Im thinking of getting around a 250GB SSD. Do they last any longer or shorter than HDDs? Will they make my computer faster? The big question: Is it worth it, or should I go with a 500 GB 7200 RPM HDD?

thinking about SSD
Hello again, Looking to move my primary W7 machine to SSD in March. Plan on a small one, probably 32gigs for W7, CS4 Design Premium, etc. etc. Is this too small, do I have to go 64gigs? Also, most of the reviews out there, at least on New Egg are average except for the Intel ones. Any...

Just was thinking....
Windows Seven, should be renamed Windows. Just simply Windows. No suffix. No XP, no Vista, no codenames, no numbers. Just simply Windows. This OS is by far the best I have used. Sure it has some bugs here and there, but that's what happens with Betas. It could be: Windows Basic Windows...
