Looks like the layout to ibuypower... good choice if that is the case, I am currently on my paladin from them =)

-You may want to take away the thermal grease unless you are a professional, newcomer's do not need that as it is a manual application item.

-Also you may consider 6gb of RAM, can't play high end games without that much these days (with high settings that is)

Gigabyte Z68 Install Onboard SSD
This video is for people with the Gigabyte Z68 chipset motherboards (mb) that has the micro SATA connector onboard: • GA-Z68XP-UD3-iSSD (bundled, great price if you get one) • GA-Z68XP-UD3 • GA-Z68XP-D3 • GA-Z68AP-D3 • GA-Z68P-DS3 All the information you need for DIY install Intel's 311 mSATA Solid State Drive (SSD) enabling Intel's Smart Response Technology (iSRT). Kudos to Gigabyte's Global Technical Service who outlined most of the steps, before downloading the essential EZ Smart Response utility from Gigabyte's website. Gigabytes launch of its Z68 motherboards enabled iSRT which allows people to use lower capacity SSD as well as a traditional HD to get complete system wide performance as if they were using a higher capacity SSD. MicroCenter technicians let me watch them do it the old fashioned way. Well, Gigabyte's EZ Smart Response (EZSR) utility makes it simpler (not simple) and faster for DIY. I wasn't lucky enough to get the iSSD bundled, so I purchased the Intel 311 through Amazon. What makes the standard installation complicated, without the EZSR utility, is that the BIOS must be set up in RAID mode before installing the operating system (OS), and when finished the BIOS will be set in IDE mode. The EZSR utility does it all, after you select optimize the BIOS for IDE, and install the OS.
