I am about to order all my parts and was hoping that someone could confirm if I might run into any part compatibility issues with my build? And Also suggest if I may need any more cooling/fans.

Thnx a lot for everyones generous help.

I'm kind of new to this but your Mother Board has PCIe 2.0 and the Video card is PCIe 2.1 Is that compatible?

No... there were some slight revisions done for 2.1, but its all backwards compatible! You're good to go. By the way... thats an INCREDIBLE deal on that powersupply combo with the video card! 165 after rebates for both! WHAT WHAT!!!!

I'd order 2 more 120mm fans for the side panel (if it has slots for them, why not use them!) - and another 120mm fan for the top 'blowhole'

These dont need to be expensive fans... as you're system isnt going to run hot anyway... but for another $3 bucks per fan or so, might as well spend the extra $9 dollars to add them anyway!
