Welcome to TF!

I'm not exactly sure, but that 400W PSU might be cutting the GFX. Unless you get like a HD5770.

What MMO's are you playing? That should be OK for medium settings on most games.

If that Win 7 is OEM, you need a new license, as it is not transferable.

Yeah, you need fans. It is best to have 2 front fans and one back fan. As your case supports it.

We may be able to suggest a better build. What is your spending limit?
