Intel Core 2 Quad Q6600
Some mobo which fits all I want {no plans on overclokin the CPU or RAM}
4 GB DDR @ 667 MHz
nVIDIA GeForce 9600 GT 512 MB
250 GB SATA Samsung
Vista Home Premium

I plan on overcloking the clocks on the GPU by about a 150 each.

Okay,so, how does this comp fair on FPS like Crysis, or future NFS or FSX??

are you talking DDR or DDR2 ram ? if DDR2 then up it to 800MHz.

try and get atleast the good 8800 card or a 9800.

i run the Q6600 with 4 gig DDR2 800 MHz and a 8800GTX and i get around the 30 FPS on crysis on high settings.

so your off to a good start

i wouldnt get the quad for gaming unless ur going to oc. the clock on it is a little to low. get the e8200 or higher.
4ddr@800mhz like spac13 said. get the 4850 since u seem to be on a budget 9600gt not a great card to play games like crysis. And hopefully the os u have is 64bit.

I agree, go for 800MHz DDR2, an E8400 and a HD4850. As for the mobo, a P43 or P45 will do. Don't forget about the PSU, get at least a solid 500W.

+1 here if you want to play Crysis.
The original parts you had listed are very marginal gaming parts by the latest standards. If you do not overclock the Q6600 to 3.0ghz, it is not favored as a heavy gaming processor. (at least not nearly as good as the dual core Wolfdales, like the 8400)

Agreed. Very Marginal.

The GPU is not great, even if you OC it.
The CPU will not OC due to the DDR2-667 Ram.
It may not even OC at all due to BIOS restrictions if its a retail Computer System.

Are you looking into buy a Pre-Built System?
(Not Everyone wants to build and I won't tell them the need to.)

If so, how much is the one you are were looking at spending.

i would say that you dont have to worry about your processor, however your card is not that great, as an above poster said, get a 8800series card or a 9800 series card. Also your ram is sort of slow, preferably ddr2 and 800mhz+ at least if you want to run some of the good games like crysis which chew up ram more then you can imagine.

My 4000X2+ still overclocked even with ddr2-556 ram.
