fan controllers have got to be the most pointless things unless you spend a 100+ with the lcd screens (still pointless)

Yeah I've heard of the ones that sit right in the bay.. can't I just use a prog for that for auto fan control?

Why don't you just water cool your system if you're going to be spending so much money?

I'd rather cut that part of the budget out if I can, because I don't think its necessary.

I assume since no one had a concern, that all parts here are compatible

Any other suggestions?

Thanks.

If you're going to spend that much on a video card, another $70 shouldn't bother you too much.

I was looking at it but isn't that considered SLi? Will it run with the mobo?

As far as I know it will work in any PCI-X motherboard.

I'll look into it...

Why not get a e6600 and overclock if you know how. I would get a x1900xt/x.
