I will be OCing that cpu as much as I can, dunno if it's a C0 or E0 yet tho.
I will obviously be using triple channel, 1600 or maybe just 1333Mhz.
Radeon 6850
my old barracuda 7200.11 500g !
old 750w psu
old heatsink... if it fits!
old dvdrom
old case
etc...

oh yeah new OS! (I was still on Vista64 .. really liked it)
the newer OS is Win7 right? Or should I pick something else?

I am not an "hardcore" gamer, cause I only play Battlefield3 but I want it to play flawlessly!


I was told x58 might be a good option, any specific model?
Any other mobo would be better/cheaper?

I am all for best bang for my buck!

Thanks in advance
