Ahh ok.
So the setup I listed for $450 would be fine for me?

Then later down the road pickup a 6800gt since I want it over a ati card. Because I wont be building this computer all at one time.
Sadly I will be going fan cooled since I don't know how to watercool and set all that up... and honestly the thought of water in a case strikes fear in my inner soul! :laugh:

Your setup should be good for gaming. I would vouch for it more, but I haven't finished mine yet so I dont know, but im expecting good results.

Also theres nothing wrong with air cooling, it can be quite effective if done correctly.
