No problem with the CPU fan. The Blue Orb II is only 66mm high.

By "2 of them" does that mean " 2 x 6Gb kits? As in 12Gb? What do you plan on using this for, since 12 Gb is probably going to be overkill.


I'd go for 6Gb RAM and upgrade this to something decent like suggested earlier, a GTX260 or a 4890. The 9600 is going to be an important bottleneck if you plan on doing any gaming.

I only looked at what was involved with the question. Oops.

I concur with the above about the graphics card and RAM. Also, what about the rest of your system? And why are you using TigerDirect???
