Okay, I am building my E6600 rig.. I am planning on overclocking far as possible while keeping it stable. However, I am sticking with air cooling.

CPU: Core 2 Duo E6600

Mobo: ASUS P5W DH DELUXE

If I am not going to be using the SLI/crossfire, is there a cheaper board that will give me similar overclocking abilities??

HSF: Big Typhoon

Case: Lian Li PC-7A plus II

not sure about this case.. its 90$..but all im really looking for in a case is for at least a front and rear fan to help the airflow.. anything cheaper you could suggest that still is a decent case, thatd be great.

PSU: HIPER HPU-4R580-MS ATX12V 580W

I like this one because of the modular plugs..looks great

RAM: G.SKILL 2GB (2 x 1GB) 240-Pin DDR2 SDRAM Unbuffered DDR2 800 (PC2 6400)

Timings: 4-4-4-12
Supposedly VERY good for overclocking with the e6600 and asus mobo

Video Card:Radeon X1300PRO 256MB 128-bit GDDR2 PCI Express x16

this machine is NOT for gaming..I was looking for a shitty cheap video card..this one actually doesnt seem too bad after reading the reviews and its only 75$.. I think if I wanted I could play HL2 with this just fine...good enough for me.

Monitor: HannsĀ·G HW-191DPB Black 19" 5ms Widescreen LCD Monitor



Let me know what you guys think! thanks
