I'm another newbie. I have a 2009 Mac right now, and I'm ready to build a gaming PC. I'd greatly appreciate feedback about my planned build: http://pcpartpicker.com/user/Pegu/saved/QTH8TW
Some money saved, a better gpu added and a cpu cooler.

Thank you! Very helpful. I wasn't sure if I needed a separate cooling component.
