Get a Q6600 instead of a Q9450 and get a much better power supply instead - something like a Corsair 750

Also, you should get a decent CPU cooler - Tuniq, TRUE, OCZ Vendetta 2

Maybe consider a DFI X48 mobo aswell instead... will probably run more stable and overclock better.

It will be nice to get a Q9650 in early Q3. A good 850 PSU should be fine. Liked Fusion Racing said, get a decent cooler to max the cpu.

Thanks for the help guys. I can't wait to get this but may have to wait a little bit and prices may have dropped so may get it for 1500 lol
