I figured those were white LEDs and would be different....but i mean how loud are you looking to go for? I have 29.9 dba fans it really doesn't sound like a jet engine or anything...not "quiet" but still

I suppose anywhere from 20-30db will be fine. Just need to move alot of air without LED's. Can't avoid the noise with 3 fans anyway.

Also looked up that elder scrolls game real quick, looks like it requires alot from the screenshots. How would the card im planning on getting handle it?

Thanks. I think I will go with the "ZALMAN ZM - F3 120mm Case Fan - Retail". Was reading and it seems a fan control comes in handy. Sorry to keep asking, but do you have a suggestion for a good one?

Yea, a fan controller. Thanks for the help. I'll look over them all again.

Since I can't seem to find this answer... The MB im getting, it will support a 3.5 floppy drive and card reader, right?

I've also decided on this monitor... Newegg.com - SAMSUNG 226BW Black 22" 2 ms (GTG) DVI Widescreen LCD Monitor 300 cd/m2 1000:1(DC 3000:1) - Retail ...its 2ms, and its good for gaming, right?

thats a good monitor but 2ms is overkill...anything under 8ms is fine.

I would get the Samsung one with 6ms if you want a Samsung

what an idiot
Um its been proven that almost any computer that scores over 9500 on mark06 can play oblivion on max settings with no problems just cause your 7900 only scores in the 7000's (probably) you dont have to be bitter I play on max settings and have no lag or jitters smooth as silk. oh and if I was a spmmer I wouldnt be back to correct your meaningless assumtions.

Does the "ASUS P5B-E LGA 775 Intel P965 Express ATX Intel" have enough connections for a 3.5 floppy and card reader?
