They have a 3 fans, 1 200mm fan at the top 2 fans in the front, and I've heard theres another one.. but that case gets super dusty fast!!

Stick with the NZXT Tempest

if your gonna leap into vista get Home Premium 64bit

32bit: supports some where around 3.5

64bit:supports up to like 16gb (vista hp 64b did have some bugs when first released but all of which have been resolved, well most.)

wouldnt windows vista ultimate be better since it has all the feautures or no? and will vista support adobe photoshop cs3 extended? there shouldnt be any problems that i'll run into with installing things right? like certain programs or drivers for my printer snd stuff like that?

Hey dude, I just finished building my computer, (I just booted first time yay)
and let me tell you that if you got a 8800 gt or better, you will probably need 64 bit to get the whole juice out of the computer.

-.- I am going to re-install my computer again. hurray -.-

ahhh, why 0.o?

The features that come with ultimate are not worth the extra cost. You will have to find vista drivers for your things, and yes photochop should work (but not for sure)
