I don't I just don't know how it works. If I put the thermalright ultra on the cpu where then does the fan go? What sorta fan do I need (antec tri cool?) and will it all fit in the case?

I have zero idea how these things work yet ^^

You simply have to clip a 120MM fan onto the side of tthe heatsink. As far as I believe, any 120MM fan will work.

You should also consider the 2900PRO for your graphics card.

Thanks I feel a bit foolish now but what the hey, gotta learn someway right?

thanks for the help n all. Looking at the HD2900 it seems to beat the 8800gts in anything but OpenGL games where it falls slightly behind... *ponders*.

its a close call and upto you really the 2900 is a fairly new card so drivers can only get better whilst the 8800gts has been out for a while so it is kinda at its full potential now
