Hello:
Used advice from you on my last build(several years)lol. My plan is to go with AMD because of the sheer value of their CPUs. The only old gear, other than the case, I plan to keep is my HD5870 GPU, unless you tell me to trash it. I am a gamer and I also overclock my gear. I'm looking at: ASUS Sabertooth 990FX motherboard; AMD Eight-core 3.1GHz; and, G-Skill Ares 2x4 DDR3 1600 RAM. NewEgg has a package deal for $319.99. I also plan to get the Cooler Master Hyper 212 Plus CPU fan/heatsink. What do you think?TIA

All of the other components are fine but i'd recommend getting a much more beefier cooler for overclocking as the Hyper 212 isn't the best for the job. Something like this is one of the top air coolers on the market and it will easily fit in the case as i have the exact same case and cooler. Also the ram wouldn't be a issue as the G.Skill Ares has a low profile heatsink. If you wanted to get the best CPU cooler then this would be capable but you have to mount it on top of the case where the 230mm fan is.
