As far as I can tell it basically comes with all the fans your going to need.

If at a later point you want to upgrade to higher cfm/noisier fans or lower cfm/quiter fans let me know and I can point you in the right direction. Or sell you some I have kicking around lol.

The ati cards cost even less than the 9600gt's... So he could very well do the same thing there and still have a motherboard that overclocks nicely. **** nvidia chipsets do suck at that...

Ya even Best Buy is going cheap on the HD 3870's, if you could see our B/S/T Forum (or just go to their site) they are selling Factory Overclocked ones for a good $130, and Crossfire them with a good P35/x38 board and its going to be much better at overclocking than an SLI Chipset (ewww!)

do they have them factory overclocked on newegg for $130?

edit: out of all of the 3870's on newegg, excluding the 3870 x2, which one is best when overclocked?
