Windows 7: New build

I plan on light OC, as this is my first high-end PC and I want to treat it nicely and not have it break every 2 months.
I hope it will last 5 years, my current PC lasted 4 after a GFX card and mobo change (due to failiure) I hope to order it soon and will post back soon.
As for the RAM, I'm going to stick with the ripjaws, since they are special for SB. The snipers look nice though... but then again, the sabertooth looks nice too
Thanks to everyone

One quick case question: Which is the coolest (by coolest I mean temperatures) case on the market?

I think you already chosen the HAF X. If it isn't the coolest it is one of the coolest.

This is the case I have. In Win Dragon Rider. It can hold it's own too. But, most any of the HAF cases are pretty good.

I really like the case, but too rich for me.

I am aiming for 1000, no more than 300 over that limit. Silence and cooling is a MUST. I am tired of overheated mobos and GPUs. I want to be able to play games without having to check temps every 5 seconds.
I am opting for choosing the compenents and having the store put them together.
The website is spanish, if you dont understand I can translate here or have google translate translate the page for you
PLEASE, no TDR or stability errors. Ive seen enough of those.
Here is my current selection:
Presupuesto a medida. PcComponentes.com

Any help is greatly appreciated.
Thanks in advance!

May I suggest possibly looking at the GTX 570? I myself built my new PC and when I was looking at GPUs the two potentials were the 480 and the 570. One of the main reasons why I didn't get the 480 is because it is very power hungry and very loud from what I've read, It's also prone to overheating aswell. The 570 is the one that I bought and I am very happy with it's performance, I run Bad Company 2 on ultra high with top anti aliasing and all and I still get 60-70fps nps.
Just my two cents!

The problem with the 570 is that it is 50 over my budget :S
If I do get the 480, it will be a Windforce 3 (3 fans), and I will have the air duct the haf x brings.
As for the cases, I like the HAF, because it has lots of big fans, and durability for me here is a definite must.
Again, thank you for your input!

Can I install Icon Packs designed for Build 7600 to Build 7601? An Icon Pack was saying install on to 7600 only and after I checked my regedit, I learned that I have 7601 (Probably SP1, I don't know). Would I have any problems if I install the icon pack? Thanks.
