    drop to a single drive, drop to an e4400.

    drop to a single drive, use ----ty stock cooling.

    either way works out.

    Just a small tip I like to give to people new to building computers: Its not hard. The look and fragility of the motherboard may put you off a bit, but its very hard to screw it up. Just take your time and youll be fine. Plus, I can help you out =]
