I suggest:
  • Q6600 (Don't pay more than $280 for it)
  • Gigabyte P35 board - DS3R or DQ6 (I suggest DS3R)
  • Any good DDR2-800 memory. It is hard to recommend something because the prices are so flaky.
  • OP650 - Great PSU, I just bought one from EastLuna for $135 shipped. It is much better than the 700Watt OCZ. Hell, it is better than the Silencer 750.
  • 8800GTS 320MB or a X2900XT 512MB. You can great great deals on both on ebay.
  • I would go for RAID0. RAID0 is so fast.

Thanks +rep

I'm getting 2 seagate 320gb Perp recording drives, so it should be plenty fast.

I put what I had in mind in my sig.. are all the parts good?

I have to use the X1900GT until I can find some money for a videocard.

If you're looking for quiet, don't get an open-style case such as the Armor. Go for an Antec P180, P180B, or P182. One of the most quiet cases on the market, if not the quietest. Maybe even pick up some Yate Loons or SilenX fans to go along with that winner of a case.

Corsair's line of PSUs are also very quiet too.

Since it seems you upgrade quite a bit, why not get a E6850 and OC it to atleast 3.8ghz?

And then get a Penryn when its out...

Looks good, but personally I'd get only 2 GBs of ram, because you probably won't use 4, and spend the money saved on an 8800, probably GTS, and then if you get more money and want a GTX, you can step up.

You don't want the Silencer 750. Definitely get the OP650. It is cheaper, but just as good.
