I'm planning on building a new gameing computer this summer, and was going to hold off on getting the parts but,
came across a place in my city that has a:


Intel Quadcore 2.4ghz Q6600 for $240.00

and a


BFG Technologies BFGRINF650iU Motherboard 134.00

and was thinking of jumping on these while they were available, would these work well together, and are those good prices.

Thanks

Unless you're interested in SLI, get a P35 motherboard.

the q6600 is at a good price if it's retail. Make sure it's retail if you're not buying a heatsink.

That mobo is too expensive for it's uses if you're not going SLI. Just nab a Gigabyte P35-DS3R, or a Asus P5k. If money is an issue, a P35-DS3L is a good choice, or a P5K SE.
