A 92mm fan is small by today's standards. I would just get the Coolermaster Hyper 212+ EVO.

What's your budget? What will you be playing / programme usage?

mostly just gaming. i mean i do a little bit of everything. but World of Warcraft is my biggest one.

i also like to run many applications at one time. for instance i like having utorrent open while i browse youtube and netflix and i like to have WoW open inbetween (you know to smelt bars and crap, or during queues i like to do some web browsing)

The Gigabyte mobo is a bit cheaper and has more SATA ports and Ultra Durable 4.

The Crucial M4 is a bit cheaper and will be a bit faster than SandForce SSDs, just don't forget to update the firmware to have performance boosts.

The Gigabyte 7950 is a brillant card with its Windforce cooler, will be completely silent unlike the reference cooler and good overclock margin (if you don't run into locked voltage issues hopefully (new BIOS is here: http://www.overclock.net/t/1332004/gigabyte-7950-f3-bios-needed/0_20#post_18771526).

How come he doesn't need a PSU, ODD, RAM, HDD?

Anyway, I'd go with something like this: http://pcpartpicker.com/p/rIqo
Put those bad boys in RAID0.

i think he was just countering the items that i posted...

i didnt post ram or power supply because i already bought ripjaw series ultra low latency ddr3 ram and a 630 watt power supply with a single 12v rail at like 58A MORE than enough for the setup im making but im banking on expandability.

oh and also i'd rather a single 256gb hard drive because not only is it going to be lightning fast on the 6gbps port but it'll allow me to use raid 0 with 512gb of disk space once i add one in around a year from now.

oh and, as far as the sata port count goes, i only want to run a max of 3 sata drives at once... blu-ray burner, and two hard drives would be the maximum i'd ever use.

i'm just looking for the best parts for a mediocre rig setup that wouldn't be too outdated in a few years from now to run games on medium settings at that point. thats part of the reason i chose to get 16gb of ram and 3gb of video memory. i figure with twice the system memory and 50% more video memory, things will at least run smoothly for a long time.
