    I'm getting my first Intel system to replace some of my ageing kit.
    Can you guys confirm that I'm not making a mistake here? I'll be adding in my existing drives, video card and power supply.

    Intel Core i5 750 2.66Ghz (Lynnfield) (Socket LGA1156) - OEM + Operation Flashpoint: Dragon Rising Game £142.98
    (£124.33) £142.98
    Asus P7P55D Pro Intel P55 (Socket 1156) DDR3 Motherboard £129.98
    (£113.03) £129.98
    G.Skill Ripjaw 4GB (2x2GB) DDR3 PC3-12800C7 1600MHz Dual Channel Kit (F3-12800CL7D-4GBRH) £84.99
    (£73.90) £84.99
    Arctic Cooling Freezer 7 Pro Rev 2 CPU Cooler (Socket 939 / AM2 / AM2+ / 775 / 1156 / 1366) £19.99
    (£17.38) £19.99
    Total : £388.86

    I'm pretty sure this is the kit that I want given the stuff I do, I'd just like to confirm that I'm not gonna get some compatibility beef! (eg the cooler not fitting)


    EDIT: the CPU being OEM says that it only has a one year warranty - I thought all UK products have a minimum of a two year warranty?
