This is the stuff I have picked out:

SAPPHIRE 100314-3L Radeon HD 6870 1GB 256-bit GDDR5 PCI Express 2.1 x16 HDCP Ready CrossFireX Support Video Card


Intel Core i5-2500 Sandy Bridge 3.3GHz (3.7GHz Turbo Boost) LGA 1155 95W Quad-Core Desktop Processor Intel HD Graphics 2000 BX80623I52500

CORSAIR Vengeance 8GB (2 x 4GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1600 (PC3 12800) Desktop Memory Model CMZ8GX3M2A1600C9R

ASRock Z68 PRO3 GEN3 LGA 1155 Intel Z68 HDMI SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX Intel Motherboard

OCZ ModXStream Pro 600W Modular High Performance Power Supply compatible with Intel Sandybridge Core i3 i5 i7 and AMD Phenom

ZALMAN Z9 Plus Black Steel / Plastic ATX Mid Tower Computer Case

I have some questions. Will the graphics card fit the case? Also what cpu cooler fan should I use? I'm thinking of getting a zalman 92mm v shaped fan. Any advice I would appreiciate it.

Yes, it might be a little tight however.

Don't use Zalman coolers, they're pricey for the job. Some people suggest one of the Cooler Master or Thermaltake models. I've used Xigmatek. Either way, you can find $30-$40 heat sinks that work as good as a $60 Zalman. Though I don't know if they lowered the prices in response to this.

ATM they got a zalman 92mm for $33. Also I think the cooler master fans are a little big for my case. I've seen some reviews on cooler master and most of the complaints are that the fans take up a lot of space.
