I'd spend the extra tenner on the CPU, just for the fact that you get a much longer warranty. I'm sure someone more knowledgeable will be along soon to give you a spec ;)

Retail is better as you get the heatsink with it and the extra warrenty. as you are getting an aftermarket cooler you'll bust benefit from the extra warrenty (worth the £10!)

You could probably get cheaper RAM I'd of thought (I cant check right now but will do shortly)
