Hi, here's my specs:

CPU: AMD Athlon 3800 Dual core AM2
HD: 250 gb Maxtor SATA II
RAM: Kingston Valueram 1GB 667MHz DDR2
Mobo: Asus M2N-E Socket AM2
GPU: Sapphire ATI x1600xt 256mb
Case: Thermaltake Matrix VX VD3000SWA
PSU: Thermaltake TR2 Value 500W
(TFT): Samsung SM940BW 19" 4ms 500:1 DVI

1) Is the cooling alright (the case comes with 2 fans)?
2) What are peoples' experiences with widescreen tfts, problems viewing stuff. What's like playing games?

Everything looks fine compatibility wise. Your case cooling should be okay, just download a temp monitoring program, such as speedfan, and check it once you have it up and running. The only thing you might look at later is an aftermarket HS/Fan for your CPU.

The biggest problem, traditionally, with widescreen displays is that most games are not optimized for them. However, this is becoming less and less of an issue with time.
