I have a ViewSonic 17' 8ms on the list. And yeah the case only comes with 1 80mm, so thats why im getting 5 more. Im also going to take your advice and look for a DVD burner. Is thier any disadvantage to getting a MSI K8N Neo2 Platnium, other then it dosent have PCI Express, if that is even a disadvantage?

well, i highly recommend a pci-e board, cause thats the future (and the now) for videocards. You'd be better off with this, with a newer chipset for $11 more:

and then make sure you get the pci-e video card (evga 6600gt)

Viewsonic make great monitors, whats the model #? Crt or lcd?

Well I got everything running and im posting this on my very first built computer. Thier still some flaws, like when I hit restartart or shutoff the O/S will shutdown but then the rest of the computer wont, lol. But I learned alot from this build, after running into problem after problem. I want to thank the following for helping me out with what to buy to make a compatible computer:

Thankyou guys for helping out with picking out this awsome computer.
