What's your budget? How much does all this cost to get at the moment? If you tell us that then we can have a look at other options for you. :)

Dont waste your time with the extreme striker waaay over priced unless your going SLI, playing games at 1920 x 1200 or higher. you better of getting the gigabyte p35 ds3r. very good to over clock too.

like sharp said the Intel p35 gigabyte ds3r is a better pick, also what are you gonna do with your system?. Oh ya make sure you get a q6600 with G0 stepping
