    ditch the ATI card and get a nvidia card instead. then you have physx, better ocing and a better folding card

    Fit actually had good results wit the ECS... P6T has a bad rep in my book...

    as for RAM, that specific RAM is a know extreme overclocker! as well as the crucials.... 1600 should be no problem

    Oh yes... suggest me a good CFM fan :) can you put 2 in that xiggy? maybe I should go with Mugen 2????

    I do care about noise, but not too much... like I would accept the noise level up to when you can't hear it with headphones + sound on :p As long as the CFM justifies the sound...

    Also, can I add more case fans? should I?

    idk. no idea on that kinda stuff. keyboard overclocking is done in the bios so it doesnt matter what one you get.

    mouse overclocking is done in windows so yeah

    i DO recommend logitech though
