Hello , i am buying parts for a new computer than i am going to have a friend build for me. and i want to know if there is anything wrong at all with the setup like if the video card wont fit or isn't compatible with my tower , or if all the fans will fit. i am really nooby as you can tell and even tho i tried really hard to make sure it all will work together , i am still nervous. Also will the system setup stay cool and have enough power supply?

just say anything at all you think is wrong AT ALL with this setup. and i am buying this all on newegg.

Looks good but since you've got the cash I'd upgrade to the kraken X60

 

Edit I don't see an SSD take  look at Ocz Vertex4 or Vector 128/256 gb or  Samsung 840 Pro 128/256

I would like to do that , but my case only has 1 , 140 MM fan at the rear. so i do not think it will fit , since i figure i need 2 , 140 MM fans next to each other for it to fit in my case. i THINK , if i am wrong please correct me and tell me how to tell what can or cant fit when it comes to fans and coolers please.

It can fit at the top (case will take up to 360 mm radiator)  u can prolly try for push pull fans for better cooling

The top only supports 120mm fans because 360mm radiator means 3 120mm fans(120 x 3 = 360) and the NZXT Kraken X60 uses 140mm fans, so it won't fit. If you look at the compatibility list of the X60, the HAF X does not support 140mm at the top.

Maybe cut back on your power supply you can get a decent one for about $80- $100 bucks less eg Rosewill hive 750w modular http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16817182133 

$90 -$20 promo code(ends today 3/1)=$70 which is a savings of $130 over the Seasonic

 

and get a different  HDD eg Seagate Barracuda STBD2000101 2TB 7200 RPM 64MB 

 http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16822148910 $110 savings of $80 over your previous choice

 

With the $210 saved get an Ocz Vertex 4 128gb SSD($110) and the Kraken X60 which is $50 more than your X40

That is also a great idea,  i might have done it if i didnt just buy the computer parts 5 minutes ago. darn so close >.< oh well....i still have enough cooling for this right? ( please answer that ). and lastly , how do you bump , or most importantly delete posts on these forums? love to know , ty guys.

The Western Digital Caviar Black is a high performance drive hence the higher price tag compared to the Seagate Barracuda. The Seasonic power supply is by far way better then the Rosewill power supply in terms of quality and efficiency, so it was a good buy. No need to worry about the cooling, the HAF X has plenty of fans which can handle the heat. You can't really bump and to delete a post, only a moderator can do that.
