Well i like the p180 it sounds pretty good from what i have read..

And i think i might go for dual 8800 gts cards (320mb) and Cosair 620HX.. so any idea it they'd fix/ power cable would be sufficient?

Well what benefit is the extra memory?

And i would be hoping that vista would have support for the dual card by the time i would actually need that much power to run a game..

So what i am wondering is there any reasons you can think of for going for the single...

Cpu Fan?

Hey, When i get my new q6600 i am not really thinking of overclocking it (well at the moment enyway might change my mind) is the stock fan enough cooling? is it noisey?

Or do you think i should replace the fan?
Personally im more concerned with performance then price so willing to buy another fan.

Is the p180 case big enough for what i am looking for? i would have thought i needed a full tower?

Also i hear that you have to be careful with your power supply cables they might not be long enough to reach across the case?

Now this will probably be a stupid question...

But with a 64-bit processor can you run the 32-bit version?
