That zalman is a rip off. For $20 more you an get a Corsair H50 which FAR out performs it

Ooh and you should be good with 2gb for a while until you can upgrade but I would advise getting atleast 3 within a month so as to avoid frustration.

it all looks good but i have read so many reviews on the ballistix ram because i wanted it for the pretty lights but the majority or the reviews i read said that the ram was either DOA, unstable, or died within 3 months.

i recommend corsair

The H50 is an all-in-one cooling solution, you don't have to worry about anything.. As easy as air cooling, even the thermal compound is pre-applied..

As stated above-The corsair is as easy as air. It is all one unit. There is no assembly required and the thermal pad is ready to go. All you have to do is mount the unit and your done. The completely insolated system does not need refilling for 3 years.  Also you can get one on ebay for $50-$60.

nice mobo choice man!

well the mobo says 6GB/s and the harddrive is only 3gb/s will that make a difference (like compatible)

also i dont really need like 750gb because i am going to use the 160gb i have now, but i have herd Seagate has some issues compared to western digital http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16822136320 so should i get the 750 or just stick with the 500

also i have to keep it under 800$ so i dont think i can get that 5770

nice mobo choice man!

the only complane i have about is the one i picked has the mail and rebate and it will auto drop to 109.99, the one you suggested is that price and has the black pci black x4 mode compared to the one that i was going to get that has x8

The 3GB/s drive will work on the 6GB/s motherboard. Most HDD's will not take advantage of the speed unless it's burst speeds from the cache.

You can get a cheaper motherboard without 6GB/s and upgrade with a controller card later when it will make a difference.

5770 is nice, if you need to save money 5750 might do.

USB 3.0 also another matter to consider.

Take the ASUS M4A87TD EVO, the second PCI-E doesn't really matter because you don't CrossFire.. and USB 3.0 is an awesome feature + the board has the latest AMD chipset.. I won't take the 5750 with only 512MB... get a 1GB version or the 4850

yeah but i kinda wanted to crossfire yeah know and the 5750 is too much $$  for the 1 gb version

and really usb 3.0 is not a issue with me i am really never going to touch usb3.0 and the other mobo supports am3

but how much is like x8 like a down frame from x16 like how much of a diffrence kuz if x8 is like almost as bad as x4 i dono then i wont crossfire

USB3 might become a necessity in a couple of years.. anyway it's your choice, I personally own a M4A87TD EVO and I love it, it works like a charm with my 1055T !

Yeah.. but if I ever plan to do a CrossFire configuration, I'll always prefer to have a 5970 rather than two 5870

Better not to CF. CF is glitchy and expensive when you could get one single GPU like a 5830 that will be far more dependable.

Seagate is not mistrusted. It is arguably a better brand than WD so riding it off is preposterous. The reason it is cheaper is because it was bought by a Chinese company and the manufacturing cost went down.  Warranty is still great though.
