Hi

Ok I try to build a new budget gaming PC ...

MB : Asus P5K
Video Card : 8800 GT
CPU : Q6600

Ram : ??? I look for Corsair Dominator PC2 8500 (4gb) but im' not sure if it's a good choice with P5K MB ? maybe a PC2 6400 will be ok or another ram model ?

So help me ! :)

But my true question (and I not found answer in your thread) is if I want not realy OC a pc2 8500 (1066) is a good choice ? I will feel the power :)  or it's better to invest my cash in another part ?

800mhz is ok ..more then ok actually if you do not OC..even if you do, it's still a good bet..I'd go with the 800..actually, I did :p

Just curious but what kind of budget are you on?

Most budget builds don't have Quad CPU & 8800 GPU...

If you let us know what you can afford it's easier to help.

Running Bioshock/ Crysis / etc etc ...

And it;'s a good choice mobo with P35(intel) with Q6600 + 8800GT ? or this better to take a mobo with nvidia chipset ?

P35 chipset is great if you don't want to SLI. If you intend on using 2x video cards, then you will need the nVidia chipset.

IMO, I prefer using Intel chipsets with Intel CPU's.
