looks good. However, doesn't the DVD burner have a CD-RW also?

You might wana put a heatsink in there. Also u wont need pc3500 ram. Get 2 sticks of 512 ramb pc 3200 ddr 400. Get the kingston brand because it performs good and it doesn't eat ur wallet. Your ps will be just fine. No clue about fans. 2-3 should be enough. Hope that helps.
