Oh, I noticed it has no system fan, it has a cpu fan, but not a system fan. Do I need a system fan? I could probably rip the one out of my old computer and use it, but I want to know how important it is.

Not for that setup. The casse sallows enough air to cool the setup

Oh, and to answer my own question about how powerful it is (since I got it up and running) I can play Nexuiz(classic) on high with HDR lighting, and it plays at about 30 fps. Not bad for a 250$ barebone kit, certainly a lot better then I thought it would be.

Agreed, that barebone was a good deal. I think it was worth the $250 for sure.
