I'm going to have to agree. I dont like to play the waiting game, but if you can hold out untill Jul 22, you can get the Q6600 gor around $265. But if you dont want to wait TankGuys has E6600s that are week L630F. The chips have potential for great OC for only $205 http://www.tankguys.biz/product_info...oducts_id=1671.

I know Im pissed I bought the e6600 less than two months ago, and I wish I would have held out. A quad for less than what I paid. Good god. Looks like Ill be reopening my wallet again on the 22nd what a waste of money. Thank you Intel?

I am not sure what your pricing is on all of these things.

Definitely get the E6600 from TankGuys, it is $199.99 (with Google Checkout). That quite a bit cheaper than most e-tailers and TankGuys is great.

I suggest getting the Gigabyte GA-P35-DS3R. It is $129.99 on the egg. Unless you know you will be going SLI soon, the DS3R is the way to go.

Not sure what you are getting the PSU for, but consider the Silverstone OP650 for $125 from Eastluna. Eastluna has some great deals on powersupplies. (trusted e-tailer)

Everything else looks good.

Heh, well first of all, this is in New Zealand Dollars not USD, and i want the SLI board because then i can run another 8800gts 320 in sli if i want, and apparently they work almost just like the performance of a 8800gts X2... if you know what i mean . Oh and change in Graphics card i am going to get the Point of view 8800gts 320 because its like $40 ($25 USD) cheaper. if this is a bad idea please say so, cause i dont ant a bung computer. and note, i do not plan on OCing the graphics card.
