Default new build

Just ordered the stuff to build my computer.... I don't game too much so I got a motherboard with onboard video, but it does have a PCI-E16x slot to upgrade later. Here's the specs:

AMD 3700+
Biostar GeForce6100 Skt 939 motherboard
1gig pqi Turbo RAM (2.5-3-3-7)
Fortron 400W PSU

Already have:
microATX tower
80gig WD HDD
40gig WD HDD
front 120mm intake fan
rear 80mm exhaust fan

Here is a complete list of what I bought: https://secure.newegg.com/NewVersion...+3700%2B+Build

One question I have is.... the southbridge does not have a heatsink or fan on it, should I get one for it or wait and see how the temps are? It will have the 120mm fan blowing right over it.

Agreed with Sora....the southbridge doesn't require cooling...but as you said, theres a fan blowing over it...so it's fine.
