I need alot of HDD space, so that Raptor wont work for me. Also, if you consider Tax for California, that budget will go above $1500, probably somewhere around $1,650.
Edit: Furthermore, I'm getting a E4300 instead of the E6600, because i'm planning to switch off to Q6600 when it price drop to $266 dollars. I think the E4300 will keep me going for 2-3 months, I might learn how to OC it too.
Well, if you want to do hardcore gaming, you are better off with a smaller, faster hdd. And if you are waiting for the Q6600, why not just wait altogether? If the 8900's are out, you may get a GTX in the same pricerange as a GTS640 today. Not only will you save the CPU money you spend today, only to buy a new one in 3-4 months, but you also will be able to get more bang for your buck in RAM & HDD as well as with the GPU.
