Hi James, newer power supplies normally have 2 fans built in. One on the bottom facing inwards to suck the warm air in that´s in the tower, another at the back that blows the air out. So, you wouldn´t need more fans in that case. The 4800 series from Ati are indeed good video cards, but you have to make sure that the motherboard supports them. NVIDIA and ATI use different M/B´s as with Intel and AMD processors. Good motherboards have 1 or 2 network connections built in nowadays, so there´s no need for an extra network card. Controller cards can used for many different purposes depending on what they are made for, but as with the network connections, a good M/B should have evering onboard. (USB, Firewire, audio, etc,etc.)

Hi James, that´s one massive overclock on an E5200. The normal core speeds are 2,5GHz and that one has been pushed to 3,2GHz!! Unless the seller states that he gives you warranty I wouldn´t go for it. Intel definately won´t give you a refund if the processor fries after 6 months!!! The graphics card is a different matter, BFG always O/C their cards and have quite a good name for themselves. If anything happened to the card within the warranty period you would get a new one without problems.
okay wait. i thought the E5200 was the really good one. or was that e6400
im going to go check. anyways, ive decided not to buy any 'overclocked' thingies because their life expectancy would probably be lower with all the heat. am i right?
(my brain is too lazy to think today sorry)
