If this is for gaming, a 5450 might not be the best choice. It is VERY low end.

you need a better video card and what is the fan for?

Front fan on the HAF 912, provides a lot of airflow.

Can you suggest a better Video card?
i thought i would need the Fan but guess not.

What games?

Anything up from a radeon 6670 will serve you well.

What about this

EVGA 01G-P3-1556-KR GeForce GTX 550 Ti (Fermi) FPB 1GB 192-bit GDDR5 PCI Express 2.0 x16 HDCP Ready SLI Support Video Card - $134.99

I just want to be able to run Bf3 on High or Medium atleast and Skyrim on ultra.

For that price you can get a radeon 6850 which is a bit faster than the 550ti! :) 

For even more you can get a radeon 6870!

Hmm it says that ATi HD 5850's and 5870's are better than 6850's and 6870's isnt that a little backwards or is there something im missing? other than that ill go with which ever one is better as long as it isnt in the 200's or 190's because i still have to do shipping costs.

The CX430 will only be able to power a 6850 at max.

Can it handle the 550ti or 5850/5870's though?
June 4, 2012 3:15:32 AM

It can't power the 5850 or 5870 because it does not have enough PCIE connectors. However, it will power a 550ti. I've used a 550ti with a CX430V2 and an overclocked i5-2500k, no problems at all.

Thanks for being so patient my internet bugged out

The only thing i am trying to play is Skyrim Maxed (maybe with HD textures definitley with mods) and BF3 on High or medium 25 - 60 fps so should i spend a few more and get it or just go with what i got? Oh i forgot to mention the OS is windows 7 of course and its going to be 64 bit.
June 4, 2012 3:44:18 AM

what is your limit for the price of the tower? If we knew this we might be able to supply more help... (not including price of windows)
June 4, 2012 5:00:38 AM

I have the 550 ti, plays skyrim just fine. I turned everything up on a 22 inch 1920x1080 and its looking good.

I want the PC preferrably under 900 (W/o Shipping ) but if i have to $1000 is ok
June 4, 2012 2:42:29 PM

Great! For $1000, you can build a system that runs those games on max with really high fps.
