Default Intel Core 2 Duo E6600 Computer Build

Hey guys what would be a good build to include Intel's upcoming new processor, the Core 2 Duo E6600 "Conroe"? Explanations of each component etc will be awesome.

Is this going to be a gaming build?

I would of course get 2GBs of RAM. Corsair would be my choice.

A western digital hard drive. A raptor if you have the money, but it's not necesarry. WD has a 3 year warranty on all their products I believe.

There are a few good companies for motherboards. Asus, MSI, DFI, Gigabyte.

For the video card, you can go all out and get the 7950, or 7900. Or you can go budget and get the 7600, or X1600.

Well depending on when G80 comes out I might get that, or I might just get a 7900GT KO and then do the step up program. Really depends. I wouldn't get Corsair RAM. I would look into OCZ and G Skill.
