I'm still researching the case, I see that the NZXT Beta Evo only comes with 1 front 120mm fan. Being that rear (1x), side (2x) & top (x2 120mm/140mm) what would be a good option?

Also if I was to replaced the stock ones for better 120mm in the front for better intake what would be choice as well. With so many fans out there I'm a bit of a loss and confuse.

Thanks again for your help and input, I greatly appreciate it.

i recently bought 3 140mm xigmatek fans for my cm 690, im quite impressed them,. 2 of those would be pretty nice at the top of that beta evo. however you can get quality 120mm fan for nearly half the price,maybe an some antec tri cools. so many options it will come down to what you like lookwise, airflow VS sound, how much you want on spend on fans and how many. you can probably find a decent ugly black fan fo 5 bucks and just buy a bunch of them or you can go all out . Most fans have alot of reviews on the internet too so if you find a fan you like just google the product and you will find reviews

Nice! So many cases out there. It's getting confusing. I've been looking also at the Antec 300 gaming case. It's on sale with the bundle thing on NCIX at 54$. Reviews seemed pretty good for a budget entry case. What do you guys think about it? Worth saving a few dollars over it or not really.

Seemed illogical that the last part of my build that requires that much research would be a case more than a GPU.

Alright,

Just a quick update on my build that I am planning to buy this week / next week at the lastest depending on the deals. I've read about pretty much everything where I could find information. I'm still debating spending 60$+ for a 5770/GTX 260 216 Cores at the moment for what I will be doing ( SC2 Beta and WoW until D3 comes out lol).

Still not plannin to OC anything and will be making NCIX assemble it. The total with taxes & shipping (missed the freaking 5.99$ because I'm a cautious buyer) comes to 995$. I'm still missing a screen ( I have no clue what so ever of what to buy at this point except don't want to spend over 150$ish widescreen 21-22" or under w/ HDMI. So any input on that would be loved as well lol.

I almost forgot, I'm also looking for a good wireless card with external antenna not those usb thing. I have a D-Link 655 and would prefer N if need or would G be more then enough?

Tri Cools suck, get either Coolermaster R4's for maximum air flow or Gelid Wing/Silent series for quietness.
