Intel is going to have a price cut for their cpu's in about 4 weeks so you'll be able to grab an e6850 for about the same price as the e6600 except it will be clocked at 3.0ghz...if you can wait, then do so. As for the GPU, if you have the cash get the 8800GTS, if you don't want to spend that much then this will suit your needs. When oc'ed it's pretty much the fastest DX9 card out. The 8800 series is faster but they are DX10 cards. At newegg, you can grab that same motherboard for about 10$ less.

Everything looks good. I am glad you shopped around instead of trusting Newegg.com. You can really get some good prices by looking around.

You can do better on the ram. There are deals posted in this forum with RAM under $100 that is equivalent to that. The deals come and go, but they are always there.

Stick away from OCZ for the PSU. They have high ripple and line variation. I suggest Silverstone, Seasonic, or Sunbeam (NUUO 550 only). Also, try to get a PSU that has only 1 12V line. Look at series like the Silverstone OP650, these are great PSUs.

As for your cooler, depends on your overclocking. If you are going to do a slight overclock, look into the Thermalright 120 Ultra. Heavier overclocking, look at the 120 Ultra Extreme.

Silverstone OP650 for PSU, you RAM choice is great. G.Skill's HZ are very clockable!
Wait for 4 weeks and get the new Intel as highwhey said and then consider to get a P35 mobo, their prices will go down too.

Or 6 weeks just to be safe in the waiting time. There are millions of people that will want to buy it as soon as it drops. So you may not be lucky to get the first batch.

You know why Intel is price dropping. To get rid of stock before Penryn. It will takes them about 6-8 months to lose a good part of their stock. They have millions of chips sitting in warehouses waiting to be shipped. There will never be an issue with stock.

True, I remember having my Athlon XP...I thought it was fast back then, a couple of years later we have dual and quad core cpus.

The first time I felt I had a fast PC was when i got a used P3 800 froma classmate. The revious CPU was a Celeron 500 which I regreted wasting my money on. I rememebr i paid about 1400 euro back then. Well the monitor costs half of this, a 19 inch flat crt iiyama but the other 700 euro were for the fishes. I never enjoyed it.. i felt so bad when i got the P3 for 60 euro.. 700 euro for something i never enjoyed and 60 for something i felt happy hmmmm Well at least after that I stopped buying the latest tech and I stick to mediocre. Thats fine for meh =3
