Default Good or bad cooling in decent case

I've got a decent case on my old rig and right now, there's two normal case fans, one in the front and back. These are the only slots I have on this case and i was wondering if I get one of those exaust fans you install onto where a pci slot should be, will it suck up all my intake air if I have a powerful one running in the front, and the same decent one and the exaust in the back.

Athlon X2 Brisbane 3600+ @ 2.91Ghz
Arctic Cooling Freezer 64 Pro
Biostar TForce 550
2GB Wintec AMPO DDR667 @ 831Mhz
Connect3D X1900GT Rev.2 580/1602
Hitachi Deskstar 80gb SATA + 80gb WD Caviar IDE
Fortron FSP Group 400W (18A/16A 12V)

it may drop your case temps a bit but also might decrease the amount of airflow going out the exhaust fan because its taking the air.

add a nice blowhole to the top or a side vent across from the cpu w/ a fan

i have 5 fans and a bay freezer to keep my dvd rom cool

2 intake in front w/ my 2 hd's
1 in back
1 intake across from cpu
1 exhaust on top
bayfreezer right under my dvd rom

a little excess but they are all really quiet fans

i wouldnt waste time on one of those pci slot fans, thats my opinion anyway unless its only purpose is for a little better airflow to video card
