Aria are pretty competitive now, I am going to build a budget machine for a friend under £200 if I can and Aria seems to be the best so far for it.
May want to go under £200, but I still want to get pretty decent stuff, I will not cut down price on power supply, so none of those £10-£20 500watt things.
As for the cooler, I got a Akasa Venom Nano, cooling a quad core 3Ghz phenom, which is slightly over clocked and it does the job fine.
Fitted no problem, but I had to make sure that it was facing the right way, so air went though the heat sink and then can escape via a fan on the back of the case.
Good specs, still not sure about Gigabyte boards, I had two and both gave out pretty quickly, but a mate of mine who is a gamer, loves them, the first PC I built for him had a gigabyte board and is over 5 years old and still going. the last machine I buiult for him, is also Gigabyte based and seems to be working fine
Not sure what Mushkin memory is like, it seems to be getting popular
Glad your machine is working ok and you got it built
