Budget?

The Hyper 212 EVO I assume is going to be in your budget.

Im sure sure about my budget... not too expensive :D  My case is HAf912 OR HAF922 (I have not got it yet :D ) That one you listed there was within a good price :)  infact i say my budget about £45?

A good 750W box like OCZ's ZT or XFX's Pro series would be fine for two 670s.
You don't need any extra fans. You certainly don't need three of them.
Skip the Xonar. It won't give you anything integrated sound won't unless you have giant headphones that need an amp.

The Hyper 212 EVO is not a fan. It's a heatsink with a fan on it. It should replace the Thermalright True Spirit, which is the heatsink you have listed. I was wrong when I said you should remove all of them because I didn't notice the Thermalright was a heatsink. You also have two case fans listed, and you don't need any of them.

What are the case fans??

The 200mm Antec and the 120mm Akasa are case fans. Without them, you also don't need the Akasa fan cord.
Who put this build together? A friend?

How mnay fans do i need? This one looks okay- http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168... Do i need anymore? remember i want to overclock :) 

I'll say this again. You need exactly one heatsink, which goes on the CPU. That is a heatsink, and it's probably the one you should get. It's not a fan; it just has a fan. You don't need any extra fans, just the heatsink.

Ok, i understand thanks :) . And sorry im a noob :D

I will now say this for the third time. You need exactly one heatsink. It goes on the CPU. Your PC has exactly one CPU. You cannot use more than one heatsink. The EVO will be fine.

And hat will overclock a i5 ivy to 4.5ghz yes??.???
