Don't think you need water cooling...And no, you don't NEED vista, but if you want it then just get vista home premium or ultimate. Or stick with xp, but you won't have DirectX10.

Salty I have seen you say this alot that thermaltake 120 is the best air cooler. Its actually thermalright, which is a totally different organisation altogether. Also MX-2 is the new best thermal paste.

I thought they were a subsidiary of each other like thermal rock is really thermaltake. They should really come up with more original names......

ThermalRight Ultra-120 HSF along with a 140mm fan from Aerocool would do. Otherwise, you can just get a Tuniq Tower 120. Is the Zalman the PSU? If so, might want to change your mind into getting a Corsair 520HX or Xclio 550W. They're a tad cheaper and operates much better.

Eh, the TRUE only comes with a mount for a 120mm fan. You would have to do some engineering to mount a 140mm to it. But personally, i think you need to save up and replace that 8600 as its going to be the bottleneck in your system.

Engineering :s you mean use a fan adapter which costs $2 may be obscure but easily done

Theres no point in using a 140mm though as the 120mm already covers 99% of the heatsink and provides more than enough cooling. My TRUE stays cool to the touch with only a single 120mm.
