You only need 1 GB of RAM. Your PSU is crap, get an Antec, and get a Western Digital.

Very good CPU (If it's the San Diego model)
Bad mobo
Bad vid card
Only need 1gb of RAM
Audigy 2 Value sucks; get the Audigy 2 ZS
Crappy PSU
Very bad HDD
A Lian-Li case would be better.

To awnser your question, no you would not need any extra cooling, unless you plan on doing some extreme overclocking, which I highly doubt due to your choice of hardware.

My rule 'the more expensive something is the better it is'. There is of course no point in purchasing a 10 foot cinema screen for a 8 foot long living room.

Try a Zalman click here for air cooling.

Personally, i don't reccomend putting water inside a box full of electronics. It's too risky!
