Looks good. My next build is going to be Intel also. If you can afford a Q6600 I would get that. I see alot of system on here reaching 3.6-3.8. From what I have read the 9300 can only get to around 3.4.

well Im looking at the Q9300 because it is 45nm and I dont really want to upgrade this for awhile (as I dont have a job, so funds dont come easily)

I would get the Q9450 or the Q6600. The Q9300 is very limited to OC dues to the 7.5 multi.

For ram, I would get G.Skill 1000MHz 2x2GB for $85 on Newegg

Don't go with the Q9300 if you plan to overclock it very high. I have seen too many people disappointed with it's performance.

Q9300 Fails harsh, the low multi and cache = not a winner

The 45nm Quads have a, at best 5% advantage over the 65nm quads clock for clock
