Will there be a spot to connect the wire from the network card to the mobo?

and how many fans should i have in my case to keep it at a good temperature, whats a good temp? i already have 3 fans, a 80mm exhaust, 80mm intake, 80mm side intake, should i have a hd cooler?

Your motherboard should have a LAN port on it... no need for a network card.

Put your sound card in the bottom PCI slot, as far away from your graphics card as possible to help prevent buzzing and "noise".

that depends on the case your getting... and the amount of space they provided to put fans in... unless you want to do what a few of us have done, and do a little DIY to it!

but for the most part... as long as you have at least one front (intake), one/two (exhaust), MAYBE one on top (blowhole for heat), you should be good... if you can get one with 92mm or 120mm fans will mean better cooling and quieter speeds.
