  1. Its me the person who asked... BTW I DONT Know about cooling .. i cant find fans just heatsinks...
  2. You probably don't have to go looking for some more fans unless you run into overheating issues.

    I've got a Xigmatek Utgard, which has a large fan on the top (150mm I think?), 120mm in back, and 120mm on front, and it works perfectly with a 1090T at 4GHz, and 6870. I'd literally just go with what the case comes with, unless you have a cooling problem in the case.

    Ok thanks i dont think i may have overheating issues ... Thanks for your answer.. what do you think about the rig ... and how would it handle for gaming ... i will basicly play Battfield 3 ,COD WAW,Cod black ops 2 and some bioshock infinite on a 1080p monitor 23' BTW Will my rig fit in that case? can it fit on this one?

  4. You might want to consider a better graphics card (as it will last you longer, in terms of performance). If you're looking at SLI/Crossfire, I'd just get a powerful single card, as although some games work well with it, others waste the technology, and can be annoying to set up. If you're not a fanboy, I'd also look at AMD's Graphics cards, such as this: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16814121651

    I'm only suggesting something that I know works in BF3, and CoD isn't exactly hard to run these days (I get 30fps on BF3 ultra, with lowest fps at about 20 on my 6870, and the 7850 is a lot better in performance (my friend has it, and gets I think about 40-50fps, which seen as it's the more demanding game there (bioshock I have no idea about sorry, never played it) It should be fine. If you're looking at getting more games to run better on high settings (Like Crysis 3/Farcry 3), You should look into better graphics cards.

    PSU wise, you'd need at least 500W, as recommended by the graphics card (500W for the whole system, not just graphics card) so a 650W PSU will be fine (although it would be necessary to have more for an SLI/Crossfire setup

    You're looking at a m-ATX motherboard, which is mini-ATX, in a ATX case. It should be fine (just check nothing's hitting the wrong part of the motherboard or you'll short it) I would look at an ATX motherboard just to make sure you'd not short anything, but you also get more expansion ports (although you may not need them, they can come in handy).
