Default Final Comments on New Build-

Hey guys, I appreciate the help in getting these new parts together. The price drop has came and it's about time for me to order my parts. This is going to be the first computer I've ever built though, so I want to make sure I am doing this right.

Here are the parts, suggestions/changes? Thanks

GFX Card

Power Supply

Intel Core 2 Duo E6750 Conroe 2.66GHz LGA 775 Processor Model BX80557E6750 - Retail

Crucial Ballistix 2GB (2 x 1GB) 240-Pin DDR2 SDRAM DDR2 800 (PC2 6400) Dual Channel Kit Desktop Memory Model BL2KIT12864AA804 - Retail

Hard Drive

dvd/cd drive
LITE-ON 20X DVD±R DVD Burner with 12X DVD-RAM write and LightScribe Technology Black E-IDE/ATAPI Model LH-20A1H-185 - OEM

A couple questions I had:

Will this run quiet and cool with the case I am getting? If not, suggestions? Do I need to buy any extra fans?

Also was wondering if the Power Supply would be efficient, and thats about it.
