Well, what you have is pretty good...Except that biostar isn't looking good. The e6600 is a good choic, but try looking for an ASUS P5B deluxe instead of that biostar. If your going to play Unreal 2007, i'd reccomend an 8800 GTX or GTS. If thats out of your budget...well, what is your budget?

asus are 1/2 DOA? As a asus deal, who has sold most other boards i can honestly say that we have seen less problems with asus than any other boards... The main problems that we ever see are user created..

Asus are unstable also? my 3.8ghz 6400 seems to disagree with that one also...

What's your budget? $500, $1000, $1500?
A good DirectX 10 System would be:
CPU: Intel Core 2 Duo E6300 - E6600
GPU: ATi R600 or nVidia 8800GTS/X
Mobo: Asus P5B-Deluxe or Asus 680i Motherboard or RD600 Chipset

If you plan to overclock, get the E6300. If you can afford it get the E6600.

The E6300 would be fine overclocked.

I see you only have 512MB RAM. You definately need atleast 1GB. That will give you a huge performance boost.
