you can get some blue LED fans on infernodeals.com

or newegg.

also probably the 3870 is the best bet for you.

Regarding Fans it doesnt really matter as long as your case has the fan size port.

For instance my case has about 4 120mm fan ports.

Well a fairly good Blu Led 120mm fan is

Fan port, is the size of fan? Not sure exactly what you mean by port.

And there is two sizes as far as i know 80 and 120 right? so if 80 dosent fit it must be 120
(and 200 big boy which is rare, but my case has it.)

Dang totally forgot about infernodeals, sadly I cannot find any fans in there, all i get is psu and cases when I type in 120mm fan

So this is the cheapest I can get?

124.99 after mail in rebate?

Smoking deal.. only 9600gt I could find that was cheaper than that HD 3870 was this 9600gt:

Newegg.com - CHAINTECH GSE96GT GeForce 9600 GT 512MB 256-bit GDDR3 PCI Express 2.0 x16 HDCP Ready SLI Supported Video Card - Desktop Graphics / Video Cards

but since your Card comes with Black Box which is worth like $30, I'd say stick with the HD 3870 since you'd be getting it for $95 if the rebate comes in

Woa! thats a much better card, Thanks for the find.

Just that I never heard of that brand, and dang why does most graphic cards have to come with the ugly anime or whatever sticker.

Chaintech is a OEM Brand, but the 9600gt is exactly equal in performance as the HD 3870, stick with the HD 3870 because of the reasons I said above...

Also check the cfm and dba of the fan. Some are 110cfm but sound like jet engines. So its up to you whether you want something quiet or somewhat loud but more airflow. I recommend yate loon or panaflo
