Default Got everything I need sorted out. Tell me about cooling.

Alright guys, thanks very, very much to a lot of help from very knowledgeable members here, I've finalized what I want for my PC.

Samsung 226BW 22" LCD.

MOBO: Newegg.com - ASUS M2V-MX SE AM2 VIA K8M890 Micro ATX AMD Motherboard - Retail
CPU: Newegg.com - AMD Athlon 64 X2 6000+ Windsor 3.0GHz 2 x 1MB L2 Cache Socket AM2 Dual-Core Processor - Retail
RAM: Newegg.com - WINTEC AMPX 2GB (2 x 1GB) 240-Pin DDR2 SDRAM DDR2 800 (PC2 6400) Dual Channel Kit Desktop Memory - Retail
GPU: GeForce 8800GT

I WILL NOT OC anything on this PC, all stock (A sin, I know) so then, would I need any type of cooling other then the standard PC fans ?

I'd get a 30 dollar Artic Cooling 64. Lemme find a link on that.

The motherboard is mATX....

ouch. Might want to get a case, and an ATX, because that 8800gt won't fit.

You'll probably be fine with what you have there.

I have a big case, and I thought since this mATX has a PCI-E slot, any PCI-E card should fit ?

Also, I can't PM people, im not sure why but if this is a problem I won't know unless somebody responds, id have GLADLY PM'd psp_crazy1 if I could have.

yes i think psp meant it (the card) wont fit in a mini case or whatever.
yes, it (the card) will fit in that mobo. yes, if you have a mid tower case, likely it will have holes for a mATX baord.
no, you dont need any additional cooling for the system.

Perfect, you helped me out quite a bit with this little build man, thanks very, very much I couldn't have done it without you.

I have a mid tower case, and I think I have a mATX mobo in it already.
