Don't forget a hard drive... you didn't mention if you were going to buy one.

Back to the original post...
Do you need a PSU and HDD or have you got them? It looks pretty good otherwise. Now the Q6600 vs E8400 - the E8400 will probably do better in games, and overclock more. But if you do anything else that will use alot of cores get the Q6600 (eg. rendering, video editing, music etc.).
Yeah, sorry I don't know how I forgot to mention I have a hdd. I'm just upgrading my older system so I have all those parts I've listed above (just added the hdd in).
So the ram should work? B/c I saw someone mention that the speed should be compatible with your motherboard and
your processor. That was my main concern.
And thank you meat_helmet, I didn't know quads were more for the rendering and video editing where the dual core is good for gaming. That will save me about 30 bucks
I appreciate the help guys!
