extreme 4 has on board sound and prob anything you get will as far as I know. Only extra cooling I would get right now is a cpu cooler and I recommend the hyper 212 evo I listed for you. It's a good bang for buck cheap cooler.

You must have missed the sale. I would wait, you can get cheaper.

OK, got the HDD and the PS ordered. Getting the CPU and board Tuesday at MC, still go with the Powercooler card? or a 660? or what?

That power cooler will outperform the 660. I would get it. I don't know where you are with your budget at this point either.

Any video card will work with either AMD or Intel setup, right?

The memory you mentioned on first page still right choice for the 3570 and extreme4 setup? BTW, if I ever decide to overclock it, is it hard?

This the right cooler as well?

Nope. There are plenty of sites and guides for overclocking.

Ok, got it all ordered, got the FD R4 too. Am I going to need anything special to put this together? Like athat special glue/paste for the CPU to motherboard?

Thermal paste is for the heat sink to CPU and it come with your CPU cooler. You got the hyper 212?
