Question New Rig coming.Please help!!

Hey so I'm working on a new PC, mostly for gaming and I don't mean Crysis on a 30 inch screen gaming, I'm looking for a medium to low end system with something like:
Q6600 or E8400
Gigabyte GA-EP43 or ASUS P5QL
GeForce 9800 gtx+
RAM DDR2 Corsair Dominator 2x1gb 1066mhz or Corsair XMS2 2x2gb 800mhz (this one I don't have a clue so fell free to advice)
19 inch monitor

If You have any suggestion, please let me know.

Well the thing is that I don't live in the US so newegg is not an option, also things here are more expensive, I have about 1100 bucks and I was thinking a 600w power supply,

I'd do the ...... Corsair XMS2 2x2gb 800mhz

I have the P5Q and it's got the 24 pin
connecter in the same bad spot.
It goes better with PSU at the
top of a case.

It doesn't bug me that much but...
What's your reason for the P5QL?

It seems like there are 100 P5Q models.
Maybe some one can recommend another
asus board in the same price range.

Well the reason why I want the P5QL is because I read this Tech-Forums Recommended PC Components v2.0 and I don't want like anything fancy, just pcie 2.0 and an affordable price are enough for me, I don't plan on doing SLI or Crossfire, but yeah, I mean, if anyone has a better option for about the same price I listen.

Thanx for your opinions by the way
