New build once again

I have been back and forth, back and forth, about waiting for prices to drop vs me not having a system. Saving the bucks and doing it myself, vs I am a complete idiot and never even attempted anything like that before.

I discovered www.mwave.com and found the prices to be very competitive, although Newegg has more selection.

Let me know what folks about this build, and especially about Mwave building it:

  3. Am I missing something? Namely, the CPU.
  4. No, it's an option when buying a MB, I saved like 3 bucks on the CPU and 2.89 on the MB. Not a ton, but it's listed together.

    it's the 6600
  5. Gotcha. All looks good, RAM is a bit expensive for what you get seeing as you're not liquid cooling, but it's decent enough memory. Other than that they're all good parts, the P6N is solid though personally I'd rather have a DS3.
  6. Here is their memory page for PC 6400 (800)

    Is there another model you recommend?

    Personally, if and when I over clock, it will be my very first time.

    I don't know how much more the Corsiar DMS2 is, but I'd check. I've always used them and they've never let me down.
