Okay, I want a computer than will last very long. So, I'm thinking about getting a E6600 and a 7600gt and get a dx10 card later when it comes out around christmas.
Therefore, I do have about $2000 in canadian. I'm planning to buy the Conroe based computer with 7600gt with about $1100 and when I upgrade to a dx10 card and a right psu for $500(? im guessing please tell me how much it might be) then, i'll use the spare 7600gt and make another spare computer for rest of $400.
Core 2 Duo E6600 $400 eVGA 7600GT KO $172 might downgrade to x800xl. OCZ XTC DDR2 800 $214 Not Sure about a mobo yet as i want to keep it mATX and around $150. Please Recomman Me a good mobo that i can overclock it pretty well. Silverstone SG-01 Evolution $160 Fortron Sparkle FSP 400w $43 I chose this PSU becasue the reviews in here were very good and free shipping. http://www.ncix.com/products/index.php?sku=17076&vpn=ATX-400-PN-B&manufacture=Fortron%20Source It all comes to $1139 Canadian.
I am buying my parts from either www.ncix.com or www.canadacomputers.com or www.pcvonline.com or www.tigerdirect.ca or www.infonec.com
Need Mobo suggestions since i'm going to run it with a SG-01 which is a SFF case that only takes mATX mobos. It also needs to have ddr2 800mhz, pci-e and conroe compatible
How does my plan sound like to you?

My personal advice, just bump it up to a 7900gt. That should be fine since DX10 cards probably wont be out for a long time still. The PSU should be fine though. I'm in the same situation as you. My system is based around the E6400. One question though, why do you need a Micro ATX board?:S
