Well if you get a motherboard with integrated LAN you won't need a network card. It frees up a spot for anything that you might want to add later as well. ;)

Well, if you buy a case with fans included, you don't need the fans! :doh:

you still need a cpu fan. The more fans the better unless your fans are loud as hell than it isn't. Were you planning on going AMD? if you are heat is going to be an issue so you don't want to go with just 1 or 2 standard case fans.
