im not really expecting the mobo or video card to drop in price. i just want them to get here at once, that way if one is DOA i will know as soon as i get them. cause i dont want to buy one a month before the other, and not be able to return or exchange one if it is DOA.

Yes it has overclocking potential, however I would highly recommend going with the tuniq tower over the af7 pro if you get the q6600.
