Alright so I am going to get a new computer, but I am hearing all this news about Intel and their new processors.

So this is everything that I was going to get for my new computer.

So I wonder... I was planning on getting the E6600, but then theres price drops this July. Then theres all these new processors being released in Q4. And I also am hearing that the E600 and the current cards now will be discontinued. So I was thinking... should I get the E4300 and have that hold me over for the new chips and overclock that baby to 3.0 ghz? When the new chips are released I'll probably have $200-$300 to spend maybe a little more.

Okay... I think everything looks pretty good. Some people will complain about that motherboard, but I think it's a very good choice. Great PSU too.

Since it seems you are building a mid/high range PC, I'd recommend the 8800GTS 640MB instead of the GTX. I'm not saying the bottleneck will be insane, but the GTS is a much better price to performance ratio. And you can overclock it like crazy, usually.

The link for the Memory didn't work, but I'd recommend the G.Skill HZ's. I have these - they are cheap and some of the best performers for OC'ing out there.

Also, great Hard Drive. I wish I would have gotten these instead of my WD's now.

Now, I don't want to come down on you about your Case, but it seems like soooo many people are getting the Antec 900. It's a good case, but if I were you I'd be a little more unique with my choice and maybe even do some modding. Just my opinion though.

I would get the E4300 really only for a temporary cpu (only till the next stuff comes out). Would u think a E4300 overclock to atleast 2.8 be a good match with a 8800 GTX?
