Yeah, it is best to add fans if the case has room for some to keep it cool, which is never a bad thing

As for Open Gl 1.5 and Open Gl 2.0, basically 2.0 will have support for the latest Open Gl effects that some new games will use, and is good to get if the card you want support it, though most games tend to use Direct 3D as the renderer I think.

Yea, if you can see if they'll let you pop the case on the hp in the shop before you buy, and make sure if there aren't any fans there's room to add. Or, see if they'll throw in an extra fan for $5 or sumtin at the shop. New computers run hotter than ever, and it's more than worth it.

theres usally at least one 80mm in the back of the case. you could make your own spot if you are confident drilling holes into your case.
