Default about case fans

i have a 3.0 P4, 1024 of pc 3200, and a 6600 gt.

I haven't monitored temps on it when I game but I will soon.

I'm worried about heat with the new video card, this computer is a Gateway that I got a good deal on & put in this video card.

I do not see a space for a fan in the front.

It just has a fan on the PSU, CPU fan, and an exhaust fan.

What do you recommend I do to keep this cool?

I'm thinking of buying a more powerful exhaust fan, drilling some holes to let the air from the cpu fan come out easier cuz its all vents now, and a pci slot cooler?

just get a new psu

as long as you don't OC the card, it'll probably be fine (that is, if the case has a fan)

do you artifact in your game? if not, then your temps are prolly ok. My 6800 GT was artifacting for a while as it was getting up to 81 degrees celcius. Since i aquired the shark case, temps have dropped down to 60 degrees under load and no artifacts, cool.
