One thing I noticed with AMD is the cooler is cheap, maybe if you can invest in a better one, you will like the results.

For the DVD rom- can't help you out never bought a sony before...

All in all you should be able to build the system no problem.

Should I buy a fan or a video card with a better fan?

What's the primary intended use of the machine?

Good for a storage drive, but not as a system drive.

A WD Blue, Black or Samsung F3 or Seagate Barracuda etc (7200rpm drives) would be better.

You can't use DDR2 RAM with that board. It's an AM3, and you'll need to buy DDR3 RAM for it.

And this would be a better CPU, IMO. And it's only $10 more:
