Looks great, high value/performance factor. Planning on overclocking... then you should aim for the AMD 5000+ Black Edition which comes with unlocked multipliers, makes life just a bit easier

Regarding the cpu cooler, for the same price you might find a better performance/value product.

In the low-end segment they are quite capable of challenging C2D setups, why not?
