Last minute advice

Hi all, i am ordering my first system after two days (29/04) basically i have compiled this list after weeks of researchs and headaches.

Gigabyte Black Aurora 570 Aluminium ATX Case - No PSU

Cooler Master Sphere 100% Copper with 4 Heatpipes Processor Cooler

ASUS P5N-D nForce 750i SLI Socket 775 8 channel audio ATX Motherboard

Intel Core 2 Quad Q6600 Energy Efficient 95W edition Socket 775 (2.40GHz) G0 Stepping L2 8MB Cache OEM Processor

OCZ 4GB Kit (2x2GB) 800MHz/PC2-6400 Memory Platinum Performance CL5 (5-4-4-18)

Maxtor 500GB Hard Drive SATAII 7200rpm *32MB Cache* - OEM

Inno3D 9800GTX 512MB DDR3 Dual DVI HDTV Out PCI-E Graphics Card

Saitek Eclipse II Keyboard

Razer Krait 1600DPI Gaming Mouse - USB

Arctic Silver 5 High-Density Polysynthetic Silver Thermal Compound Thermal paste 3.5gram


Im happy with the parts i have chosen, but my knowledge about it is probably limited, the two parts that i am completely alien to the mobo and the powersupply. this is where the geniuses from toms hardware forums can help me with. My preference about a mobo is really not specific , because i dont mind if the mobo has or hasn't got overclocking ability and sli. all i want is a decent mobo. please feel free to suggest any and for the PSU the same preferences apply.

If it helps, this my first build, i have never overclocked before, i want to play the the latest games, crysis can go to hell, im using a 19" monitor, i dont expect this system to last me a lifetime(i will be upgrading at least once a year) and i hate to be picky but im only ordering from www.ebuyer.com

and finally please also criticise me on my other parts,
i need all the advice i can get pls pls people i cant wait to order :bounce:

thanks in advance

  1. I would get this PSU
    PC Power & Cooling Silencer 610w EPS12V
  2. 9800gtx is not ideal, see benchmark comparing it to g92 8800gts with core at 675mhz (stock is 650mhz).
