Quad cores show different levels of improvement in different applications. It is true to say that the increase in performance from multi core based processors will not be significant until programmers begin to release multi-threaded applications, which will not happen until more people have multi-core processors.

Get that memory.

and what kind of power supply are you getting? i suggest the PCP&C 610

what about cooling?
with good cooling you can get at least 3.5ghz.

Cgrado I was looking at the specs and I think the memory i'm getting is better? I'm assuming I'm wrong because of the huge cost difference... but what is better about the ram you linked me too? The latency seems worse to me as well does the cost.

My power supply I already have and have had for a year so I don't know its name. But its 600 watts. Is it THAT important?

My cooling system will just be the front/rear/side 120mm fans. I need help on this. I have a harddrive cooler as well. PLEASE HELP ME ON COOLING THE MOST

alright then.
For PSU- the number of Amps you get on each rail is very important, not just the total wattage, especially for a conroe and 8800gtx.
and on memory0 corsair uses promos chips, you want micron d9s which are found in the crucial memory.
