wow.. many things to answer so let's get this done with >.>

exad: Never heard of that PSU manufacturer I also think that those aren't available anywhere in Finland.

Yes, changed the graphic card to EVGA e-Geforce 7950GT 512MB Superclocked (is that EVGA's cooler good & quiet enough?).

I'm still gonna take E6400 and then as mobo the P5B-Deluxe (you forced me! )

Look for PSU's from the following for high reliability: PC Power and Cooling, OCZ, Seasonic, Antec, and Forton Support Group (FSG).

All are good reliable PSU Manufactures!

Also, the e6300 can do anything the e6400 can do as long as you have good RAM, IMO its better to get great ram now so when you upgrade to quad core or something your ram isnt the weak link..

thats a very good point. Overclocking requires good stable ram, a stable psu and an oc'able cpu. both e6300 and e6400 are oc'able so really depends on budget, don't spend all on mobo and cpu, cause often ram and psu can make a big difference, and need replacing later on if poor choice made early on.

Here's a better rig, in my opinion:
CPU - Intel Core 2 Duo E6300 (1.86GHz)
CPU Cooler - ThermalTake Big Typhoon + Arctic Silver 5
Motherboard - Asus P5B-Deluxe (WiFi if you need Wireless)
Ram - G. Skill 2x1GB DDR2 800 HZ
GPU - XFX OC'd 7950GT (610/1600)
PSU - PCP&C Silencer 610
HDD - WD 250GB 16MB Cache HDD
Display - LG Flatron 19" Monitor

Basically the same, but an E6300, better Ram, better PSU, and better GPU. If it was a decision between one or the other GPU I'd get XFX Passive Cooled 7950GT which is fulled warranted at 610MHz Core Speed, 1600MHz Ram Speed, that's the speed it comes in the package at.

That looks very similar to mine, I'm getting E6300, Asus P5B-Deluxe/WiFi, G. Skill HZ Ram, Big Typhoon + Arctic Silver 5, PCP&C 610 Silencer, WD 250GB HDD, and an ATi/AMD R600 DX10 GPU.

Good Luck!

Edit - Selected GPU for your Core 2 Duo Rig.

If you get the e6400 you'll just be paying more for nothing if you're planning to oc there won't be a worthwhile performance gain. That's the reason I suggested the e6300. Not because I thought you would want to cut down in order to get the motherboard. It just doesn't make sense to have an e6400 and a p5b deluxe.

The E6400 will be wasted, with a ThermalTake Big Typhoon you can overclock an E6300 to the same clock speed as if you had an E6400. You can reach 3.0GHz easy with either, but the E6300 is cheaper.

^^ Agreed with exad.

Well, the situation changed a bit. I got a DFI Infinity 975X/G from my cousin for 100€ so I bought it from him.

So technically E6300 is E6400 but with lower clock frequency?

CPU: Intel Core 2 Duo E6400
CPU cooler: Zalman CNPS-9700 LED
Motherboard: DFI Infinity 975X/G
RAM: G-Skill 2x1024MB PC6400/800 CL 5
Graphics: XFX Geforce 7950GT 550M 512MB (passive) / EVGA e-Geforce 7950GT Superclocked 512MB
Case: Thermaltake Armor
PSU: be quiet! StraightPower 500W
HDD: Seagate Barracuda 250GB SATAII 16MB cache
Monitor: LG Flatron L1970HQ 19", 4ms, DVI, TCO03, 2000:1
Fan control panel: Akasa Fan Control Pro

I have a DVD burner, keyboard and mouse already so I don't need to buy them

I'm planning to overclock the CPU and Graphics card atleast a bit. I'm not sure about the motherboard though, any suggestions? I haven't also made up my mind with should I take EVGA 7950GT or XFX 7950GT. Tell me what you think about that rig and is there anything I should propably change in it.
1. If you plan to OC the CPU, then just go for the E6300.
2. I would get a Gigabyte S3 P965 Mobo
3. If you could get some extra $$$ then buy the 7950GX2
4. Also, get a PSU that I have heard of. Check my system
