  1. Im new to making computers, and have no idea. Im going to buy a barebone computer from tigerdirect. It says it doesnt come with a Heatsink fan. Would the Silent Knight fan from newegg be fine? The barebone Computer is...

    PCChips A13G+ Socket AM2 Barebone Kit - v3.0
    AMD Athlon 64 X2 5000+ 2.60GHz Black Edition Retail
    160GB SATA HD, 2GB DDR2 PC6400
    ATX Mid-Tower Case
    450 Watt Power Supply

    Any socket AM2 cooler should be fine... as long as it physically fits in the system. I recommend a ZALMAN "cnps" product, can't go wrong. They make several different models for that socket and are super-quiet. Newegg usually carries a bunch of their products in stock so I would check there first.
