1. Probably a good idea.
2. Boot from your Windows CD, and format the drive.
3. It comes with a fan, but Doesn't have a place for any others.
4. You'll need thermal paste to reseat the HS/F.
5. Unless your HS/F is too tall (or graphics card), you ought to have no problems transferring everything over.
I don't even need AGP because all I need is DVI so I can DVI-HDMI connect it to my TV, I won't be gaming at all. All I'll be doing is watching movies, browsing the internet, going on AIM, and the occasional Photoshop 7.0
Is the standard fan good enough?
What thermal paste do you recommend?
As you can see I'm on a very small budget.
