I am planning on getting an silver hydraulic alienware case from directron.com, but i dont know what to do about my fans and cooling. i know for sure im goning to get an amd system with a thermoengine and delta fan and a front 80mm case fan and an 60mm exaust fan in the back. i was also thinking about putting a fan on the lower left side to keep my pci and vidcard and stuff cool. should i get a 80mm, 92mm, or even a 120mm? will a 120 be overkill? thx for you help.

As long as you have two good case fans this should give you enough circulation through your case, one in and one out, put in what you can fit and then you wont need a third, as far as your video card add a better HSF to it to keep it cool as this will wotk better to keep it cool then just adding case fans, your PCI cards should be fine with good case cooling.

goodluck
