im going to do some heavy gaming on this new build....also i am a cad designer so ill will be using some cad, i also develope websites so i will be doing coding as well as programming....but mostly gaming...im looking to get about an extra ghz on the processor and clock it to 3.2...over all i think this will be a good build for me :)

looks nice, but if your a cad designer a workstation class gfx card might be better suited for you, although since you said that this build is for heavy gaming too the 8800gtx is probably your best choice.

you might want to look into some different ram, corsair is usually more expensive then other brands (like G. Skill) but since your oc-ing you might want to get this super talent ram instead.

Im getting it for my next build as well, and im actually ordering about half of my components tonight, that ram being among them.

I assume you'll be running 64 bit Vista (although I'm not sure if that's the best option for gaming). If that's the case I'd go for 4 GB RAM. I'd also go for the E6600 which has double the cache.
