Thanks for the replies.

Added the spinpoint hdd, takes me to 1083 shipped.

Sweet.

One more thing, is it worth it to buy a sata cable from newegg when shipping for them is more than the actual cable? The mobo only comes with one from the looks of it.

Hmm, my computer runs an i5 750 with the 5850 and currently all I have is a very small side fan n the case and the CPU fan directed to the back. (I had to disconnect the front fan because it was noisy and annoying and have not yet replaced it) checking temps I have no heat issues - and that is in a country without Air Con! :p 

My wifes computer just has a big side fan and even OC'd (not extreme OCing) she has no heat issues either.

So no, you do not need it
