Hey there! I need help on a building a gaming PC for this Q6600. I'm not sure which kind of motherboard would be nice for overclocking with this Q6600. Probably when I get the motherboard then I'll slowly get the case and a great video card that would MAX out MW3 or Black Ops or suggest me a good build that's around $100-200 I already have a Dynex 400W which I know this sucks so I'll probably buy a better one. Also I got my HDD, OS, and DVD Drive so basically what I need is Motherboard, PSU, and RAM.

Well the q6600 is already pretty old. I would just get the cheapest socket 775 board that newegg has, this will cost around $45.

Ram 2x4 for 8gb of ddr3 for around $50.

GPU AMD 7750 for aroun $110.

Theres your $205 computer. Sorry you cant afford a case but just assemble the parts on a table top and be very carefull around them. This computer will max MW3 at 1600x900.
