ack... I can barely read it


1) Asus glacier coolers (for the 9600GSO) cannot detect temperatures or change fan speeds... they run 100%... I suggest getting an EVGA 8800 GS from EVGA's ebay store
2) Are you planning on CPU folding? I suggest getting an E1200 (dual core)... they OC like crazy (I have one
)
3) For the power supply, if you are only planning on running a single or two cards, you will only need a 400-450W PSU... something like an OCZ power supply will do... no need for a Corsair (save some money!)
4) Ask yourself if you really need a case... you could easily just put it on top of a box and folding like that...

men u bit me to it
but yea u can go caseless ,and use the e1200 ,for the rest is up to u
and if u decide to use that single core u better pick up a copy of vista ( 32 or 64bit no matter)

the 9600 GSO is $50 after MIR from TigerDirect.com and comes with a 1 yr warrenty instead of 7 days. It's pretty much the same thing as the 8800GS only smaller manufacturing tech. It get's ~3k PPD in my sig rig @ stock clocks. Also, gibsonnova74 uses flash drives for his folding farm, so ask him about that.
