Arite here the deal, I'm going to waste 50-70 to get some cooling for my rig. I don't know which brand and what is good, but here are the things that i'm going to replace or add on.

replace:
Video card fan
coolermaster fan on cpu

add:
memory cooler
2 case fan, one on back and one on front
hard drive

I'm a little scare of the water cooler thing, so i'm sticking with the old ways. Hope i can get some good recommend fans and brands. please look at my specs and tell me what you think is good and is not.

You really don't need a video card fan as the ti4600 already has adequete cooling provided there is cool air in the case. I think you should invest in some case fans for a blowhole or seomthing which will improve overall temps in all your components.

For HDD, you cant go wrong with Western Digital. An 80Gb 7200rpm will suite today's lifestyle perfectly. :D

I would do a little more research before buying the coolermaster (I'm assuming its the hc001 with heatpipe?). Although it is a good heatsink, I dont think its worth its price. There are other heatsink which are better value for money.

:D thats hilarious!

Yea lazerin is right- no need to replace your GPU HSF unless you have the money. Buy some ramsinks since their cheap ($7-8) and some good case fans to blow air over the top of the ramsinks.

I would recomend panaflow L series, silent and move a lt of air. unles you plan to have em on a reo or switch than get better ones so you can turn em down when you dont need em on like at night or during winter.
