I'm also going for a 64 bit and share some of the same hardware you do. Since you will probably be rinnning 64 bit OS go to each manufacturer's website and see if you can find/download 64 bit drivers for each piece of hardware before you buy them. If you can find the driver send the company an email and if they don't make any 64 bit drivers do not get that hardware and use a different brand.

My parts can be seen here they are final now and I will buy soon. I will be using the fans on the case and a expansion bay fan.

haha ok but I don't think fans are that loud but perhaps I'm used to the noise and tune that sound out?

is your pc wut you have in your sig? cause if it is then you dont really need anything else cause you really dont need 4 gigs of ram for any games out or any coming out in the next year or so. and a 7800GTX will run ANYTHING on high settings so you dont really need to change anything with 4 gigs you wont see much difference and SLI is only a way nvidia can make more money off of suckers who want to say they have sli which runs nice on some games.

you should go with e ac ustom water cooling kit

DD D5 pump
xtreme III 3 120mm fan radiator
a reservoir or T line
TDX or storm CPU block
MAZE4 GPU block

www.dangerden.com go check out the sticky in the OCIng section

if you want something really reallyl really silent, then i would suggest you go with the zalman reserator cooling at newegg, it has no fans i believe and just fins to cool the water down last time i checked it was like 250 dollars with the CPU and GPU block with pump+reservoir=reserator
