Q6600 Kentsfield 2.4 GHz
8800 GTX if ur a big money waster get 8800 ultra (double if you want)
WD Raptor 10,000 RPM or Seagte 7200.10 (watever amount of storage you want) or both
Silverstone 750 Watts
Creative X-Fi Xtreme Gamer Fatal1ty
For cooling pick one:
Arctic Cooling Freezer 7
Thermalright ultra 120 um this is so popular almost everywhere is out of stock
tuniq tower 120
I was thinking about getting the 8800GTX, but I think I might wait a few more days for the 9800GTX as LegendaryC has mentioned. But if it's not out before the first week of April, I might just go with an 8800 card.

Thanks for the suggestion, but I really want to stay in the P35/Quad-Core range. And my budget is $1,500. But if you have any good reason why I should go with a Dual-Core over a Quad-Core, please explain.

Do the GA-P35-DS3L or Abit IP35-E come with any eSata ports? I liked the extra heatpipes on the GA-P35-DS4. I guess I just need eSata ports, FireWire, enough room for a TRUE-120, and also easy to overclock, please recommend me a good one.

Most games aren't quadcore ready. However, You could easily overclock the E6850 to 4Ghz on air (even with an P35 mobo) which would pwn any q6600 in gaming.

To know more: Read Does Quad Core Matter?



I'll do some revision on the rig...

Rig Configuration:

Total: $1,517.89

Good article SZayat. I'll probably be doing some video encoding and decoding, would you prefer a 4.0ghz dual-core or a 3.2ghz quad-core? If I was going to go dual-core, I was thinking about the E8400 Wolfdale.
