I just built a computer and I am wondering how my ventilation should be. My case is an ULTRA XBLASTER MID-TOWER CASE V2 (http://www.tigerdirect.com/applications/SearchTools/ite...). I have 3 fans to put in so just trying to figure out the best way to keep the system cool. Here is my setup:

AMD Athlon II X3 450 3.2ghz AM3 CPU
x2 Kingston 4GB 1600MHz 9-9-9 DDR3 HyperX
500w PSU
AM3+ AMD 760G USB3.0 Micro ATX AMD Motherboard
GIGABYTE Radeon HD 6670

Any help will be much appreciated. Thanks!

Intake in the front and one the side, exhaust out the back. :)

Close as you can to the GPU as possible for gaming and closer to the CPU for non-gaming machines.
