Is really urgent that I buy a CPU fan? Could I hold a lil bit with this case fans and the cpu retail fan? I kinda short of money now :p . If I really need to buy one asap which one do you recommend me?. Do I miss anything in here or that would make me a good gaming rig.

Sound cards are over rated as onboard sound rules. unless you plan to actually setup a surround sound speaker ssytem i would have gone w/o it.
Use the money saved to get the cooler.

g15 is good for MMO but honestly overated and almost useless for anything else. The belkin nostromo is a more versitile device IMO plus it is independent of the keyboard so you can use any keyboard you want.

No matter what looks to be a great system. Get a cooler asap. A good cooler doesn't have to cost much.

Keyboard is not an option. I have it already, and I'm into MMO. Also 1rst shooters game.
Keyboard, monitor and mouse bought some time ago with my dell laptop inspiron 1420 so I could play some few games meanwhile. using the 22 as 2nd monitor.
So, I really need to get that CPU Fan asap?

Another thing I just noticed, kinda late though. The mobo I chose only supports to 800mhz memory. Would that be enough for a while, or I should have go with one mobo that could support 1200mhz DDR2 at least.

Yeah i rubbed the lettering off of my g15 awhile back. but other wise a solid build. you should have fun with it.

I don't plan to overclock at starter, maybe in a couple of months, so can I hold with cpu retail fan meanwhile?. the sound card is just 24$ ain't that bad. I always wanted a sound blaster sound card and that's it.

I have another question: Windows Vista 64 is the way to go?
CPU Fan?
Exhaust Case fan?

That optical drive you chose is a "lemon". Do not get a EIDE drive. Get yourself a SATA for the fact the hook up isn't ten times so big that it blocks your airflow not to mention it's a pain in the arse to hook up.

Yeah, didn't pay attention to that! Well, I'll get a sata later.
No one has answered me about getting the cpu fan.
How about OS? Should I go with Vista 64?

Unless you plan on overclocking right away, I would hold off on a cpu fan. That thermal paste will do just fine on helping to bring your temps down. Also yes with the 64bit vista.

I would suggest going ahead with the cooler so you don't have to dismantle the rig later. Put it on as you do the build and be done with it, you'll be overclocking before you know it, dump the sound card and get a cooler.
