You will want to move to a bigger case. These parts will need a good amount of circulation to keep things cool.

You are the reason I'm still posting in this forum. It's fun to see people excited about computers, and excited to learn about them. I'm glad you like my setup...it should do you well!

No, but it's recommended. Usually the thermal paste that is preapplied to the HSFs is OK at best. Grab yourself some Arctic Cooling MX-2...great stuff.

And I'll second Rohan's idea for a new case. In fact, then you won't need to get a mATX board. Let me see if there's a few better deals for an ATX board. I'll try and find you a decent, reasonable case.

I looked, and I'd just stick with the mATX board you're planning on.

How do you like this case? ..comes with PSU. Comes in green too, but I think it might be a little more.

It's actually the case I have. I wouldn't trade it for any other mid-tower case out there. I love it. And it's really come down in price. I got mine for about a hundred bucks with the PSU about 2 years ago. Sometimes they'll offer free shipping. BTW, that 9850 is ON SALE!

You can skip the thermal paste if you want. You'll see a few degrees of difference at best. I have an Antec 900 I am selling. It's been modded for cable management, but it still looks great. PM if you're interested. Focus on that 260 as much as you can. Once you pop that baby in. You'll feel like you're finally alive. Holding mine in my hands was like holding my first child. Such a great feeling. Once I move into my Cosmos, I'll be adding another one soon as I sell one of my computers.
