Looks good. This ram is also good. The Antec 650w is good. The GT is 105w and quad max at 200w so you think you may not have upgrades soon. You can have Antec EA500w and use that $ to get a better cooler such as Xigmatek 1283 if you want to OC quad.

Good GPU can you spare cash for a HD4850 they are better card.

Q6600 is a good chip. But the Q9300 both @ stock clock is better but may not overclock as well.

STAY AWAY FROM THAT MOTHERBOARD.

I have it and I spent 3 days building my pc only to find out that the mobo is a dud. Alot of people are having problems with the p5q pro not booting with video, usb, or beeps.

If you want to save yourself a major headache, go with another mobo.

P.S. the p5q pro is not pci-e 1.1 compatible, even though Asus says it is, it's not. So if you don't have a pci-e 2.0 video card, it simply will not boot with video either.

I have a 2.0 pci-e gpu (4870 1GB ddr5) and it still doesn't boot with video, so stay away.
I'm gonna return this mobo to newegg to get something else =/.

Looks like a great build. I couldn't be happier with my P5Q Pro. I used it for my first time build as well and the build went without any problems at all. Booted up the first time with an E7200, G. Skill DDR2 800, and a 9800GT. My E7200 is also overclocked now to 3.16 and I didn't have any problems with that either.
