Christmas C2D rig please help me spec - Page 6

I would spend a bit on cooling for your cpu aswell, get the tuniq tower. Actually, with the extra money get a P5B (lol, thats all I know that is good...ask someone else about 680i's) and also get a custom water cooling settup! That will really make your E6600 fly.

Either way, I would still get the P5B lol. Just save the money you havent spent, or if you really want to spend it then get an E6700

The DS3 IMO is better then the p5B(not deluxe).
There are some reports of overheating p5b's Nb's , so if you choose the p5b and you're not going to use sli , I advise a nb cooler.
The rest sounds well.
BTW there was a 7900GS at sale on newegg for 140$ new, maybe uou wanna look a that.
