Here is the final list for my components, which I will be ordering in approximately two weeks time. Please no comments about INTEL and AMD; I have made my decision and am going with INTEL. I am having concerns that my machine may not be cool enough though. The case I am thinking of getting has one intake fan, 80mm and one exhaust fan, 80mm. Both of the fans will be Zalman. My CPU cooler and heatsink is also manufactured by Zalman.
Will my system be cool enough? My system specs will be as follows:
Intel Pentium 4 "Northwood" 3.0GHz (800FSB) with HT Technology
Abit IC7-G MAX2 Advance "Canterwood" (Socket 478) Motherboard
Corsair 1GB DDR XMS3200C2PT TwinX (2x512MB) CAS2
Seagate Barracuda 7200.7 80GB SATA 8MB Cache
Connect3D ATI Radeon 9800 Pro 128MB DDR TV-Out/DVI
Zalman ZM400B-APS 400W PSU
Zalman CNPS7000A-Cu Ultra-Quiet CPU Cooler - 92mm fan
2 x Zalman ZMF1 80mm Silent Case fan - 3 pin
Sony CRX320E 52x32x52x16 CDRW/DVD Combi Drive (Silver)
OcUK Value Floppy Drive - Silver
Creative Desktop 6000
CoolerMaster Centurion - Case
Would I need a fan for my graphics card aswell?
