Ok, I think I have all the components for my new comp. I am hoping that if you look it over and see any possible issues with it, that you will let me know. Trying to avoid any problem. I will be overclocking. Money is not a big issue. Computer is primarily for gaming. I plan on using eVGA's step up program to buy 2 9800's when they come out.Thanks for any input.

Drop Q6600, and get Q9300 for $266.00. This is the replacement of the Q6600, and overclocks much better at lower temperature. If you are not going to do any massive video encoding, you might want to go with a E8400 for $215 and then upgrade to Intel Nahalem by the end of the year . E8400 are faster than a Q6600 in gaming. According to bit-tech.net Benq FP241W lcd is the best gaming lcd at 1920x for at a price of $720, and beats UltraSharp 2707WFP in all the testings.

Funnier if it came from a politician.

Drop Q9300, and get Nehalem. lol. Neither of which is out yet.

I do agree with E8400 for mainly gaming. It rocks. But swap that U90 out for a TR U120E + a Scythe 60cfm+ 12cm fan if money is not a big issue.
