  1. The build looks good. Don't forget you'll need a 64-bit OS to use all your RAM.

    Where are you buying your parts? The faster WD6401AALS is currently on sale for the same price as the WD6400AAKS.

    http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16822136319&Tpk=wd6401aals $69.99

    Get it while it's hot if you have the option of buying from newegg.
  2. One more question. Would you recommend the Q6600 or the Q9400
  3. it looks pretty nice. a casual gamer build pretty much..
    well, not too casual if your gonna overclock :)

    that Q9400 can be pushed really far with the proper cooling and voltage
