With ATIs new drivers coming out NVIDIAs lead in OpenGL games (Doom3, Quake 4) may have vanished. Just a thought if you aren't sure about which video card to go with (ATI or nVidia).

If you want the ultimate air cooler, than the Zalman aero flower is the best, but is a bit bulky. The Zalman 7700cu is nice as well. If you have the money water cooling is great, means that you can have a quieter PC, while still having better cooling than air.
