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...
