Sounds ok - I'ed get some more fans though and mod the case a bit. 1 Fan isn't really that much. Unless of course it's a large case. Then you have plenty of room.
Just reread - medium case. This should be ok, Don't forget though youare now using high sepc equipment - ie 1.2 gig is quite high. so cooling is becoming more and more important. check these guys out for ultimate cooling <A HREF="http://www.3dfxcool.com" target="_new">Chill Me </A>

yeah...I've heard those chips can get fairly hot. I'm not much into games, but I still want a fast PC. I'm considering doing some home recording on it and I use Photoshop also so the faster the better in most respects. However, I was considering maybe a little slower chip since I'm not a gamer. I also don't want to upgrade and then be out of date...
