Im thinking about getting an amd 3200+ on a pci-express asus motherboard, along with 420 power supply with a nVIDIA 6600 256MB pci-e card.

If my case comes with 2 fans, would i need any more if i am using this comp for demanding games?

also, if I overclock my nVIDIA 6600, will this require an extra fan just for the video card?

I don't see a need for additional fans if you use a decent heatsink and case in the first place.. A 420w PS should be enough, but it also depends on the quality of the PS.. If it's a cheapo pow-wow, LG, etc, power supply, I wouldn't trust it around my 6600. I also like any power supply I use to have plenty of rail separation, and over-under voltage protection on all rails.

That way, if I plug something in while the machines running, I don't have to worry about it damaging something else with a voltage spike.
