The stock fan should work well under normal conditions. I should point out that an AMD Phenom II X4 955 Black Edition Deneb 3.2GHz paired with an MSI NF980-G65 AM3 NVIDIA nForce 980a SLI will cost less and may outperform the setup you have posted. Though, if you've already ordered it, there isn't much you can do about it. Remember, you will need to reinstall Windows and if you're currently using an OEM edition of Windows, you will need to repurchase it to avoid violating the license. Your old power supply does not have enough power to supply two 9800 GT cards. Using SLI with those cards isn't a good idea. You would get better performance simply purchasing a much more powerful single card. However, if you choose to use SLI, or get a better card, you I suggest a 650W to 700W PSU to supply the cards and to have extra capacity. The CORSAIR CMPSU-750TX 750W, OCZ StealthXStream OCZ700SXS 700W, or the PC Power & Cooling S75CF 750W will all work well.

I've never had to return the stuff, if it hasn't shipped yet, you may be able to stop it. You can try contacting Newegg. Windows 7 Ultimate is, IMO, a waste of cash. Each edition of Windows 7 is a superset, so unless you're needing Enterprise-level computing, Windows 7 Professional will offer everything the Home Premium edition will plus a few extras like XP emulation. Though I wouldn't want to run a game in that mode. The Ultimate edition does have BitLocker, I never used it, the ability to boot from VHD, and MUI Language packs. Microsoft is targeting professionals and PC enthusiasts with the Pro edition, so Ultimate isn't be heavily promoted since so few people actually need it. Here's a site that explains the SKU's.

There may be a restocking fee with Newegg. I'm taking advantage of that special $50 promotion Microsoft was running a little while ago, to get 7. If you're getting 7 to use on this PC, make sure you are getting the full version and not the upgrade. I'm not sure if a previous copy of Windows can be verified if hardware is substantially changed and an upgrade edition installed after that.

That's not a very good setup, but we can work with that.

Motherboard: MSI NF980-G65 AM3 NVIDIA nForce 980a SLI HDMI ATX AMD Motherboard - I got this thinking you might want to SLI, other than that, it will work well. I did some checking into your current motherboard and discovered that none of the Phenom II or Athlon II CPU's can be used in an Asus M2A-VM. $159

Alternative Motherboard: ASRock M3A785GXH/128M AM3 AMD 785G HDMI ATX AMD Motherboard - If you don't care about SLI or are thinking of upgrading to an ATI Crossfire setup later, this board will work. $99

CPU: AMD Phenom II X4 955 Black Edition Deneb 3.2GHz - One of the best processors AMD has. $189

RAM: G.SKILL 4GB (2 x 2GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1333 - You need DDR3 memory. $70

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx...N82E16819115036

my father in law builds comps and told me about this sence no games out there really use the quad core yet, to get that but then again he doesnt really know much about amd stuff eather. also tho i think in about the future games coming out that will take advantage of the quad .... i have no idea what to do right now cuz if i get the duel core no need to send back the xfx motherboard cuz the duel will work in it.... :thumbsup: lol what do you think?

That was correct, but not anymore pretty much every game going to come out will be using multi cores. So it's worth getting a quad core now.

Agreed, most new games are using quad core, or at least taking advantage of more than two cores. However, older games that were not designed for multiple cores will not see a benefit. Believe it or not, in many ways, a high clock speed will get better results than additional cores, especially if the application doesn't support several cores.
