much thanks for the replies thus far. few more questions i just thought of.
this is the best picture i can find of my case..http://h10010.www1.hp.com/wwpc/images/emea/hp-pavilion-a6200-pc_190x170.jpg
do you think i would need additional cooling?
and another thing, if i went with a superclocked version would that require even more cooling than a non superclocked version?
(i was planning to build from scratch within 2+ years when this pc gets outdated and didn't want to spend more money than i have to on this stock case)
