Here's my (final?) parts list. I dropped the hard drive/imaging software combo in favor of a hard drive/Vista combo. I can find a freeware alternative for drive imaging.
Others on Newegg have ordered the heat sink here with this CPU. I imagine it fits, though the part doesn't name an AM3 CPU specifically as compatible.
The only thing I can think of to improve this would be to get a solid state hard drive large enough for the OS, a smaller hard drive for programs/data, and use the 1T drive for personal files on a file server made from my current machine. But that would be more $$$. Anyone have comments?
