Hey For 1440, I suggest you hold on the video card, and wait for the 8800GT. It can be almost as got as a GTX!

It is looking good if you want to save some money order the Corsair 520HX at clubit.com for 80 dollars.

Ok thank you for your help
yes for the e6750 get the AF7, its more than enough.. for the q6600 you need a Tuniq because it dispenses so much heat..... but i'm sure that the Zalman isn't as great as the Tuniq Tower 120...

ya... that thing can perform with a 8800gtx.....

imagine how great it will be if you had a second one which performs with an Ultra (i know regular ones do)

well i haven't build a system in about a year... but but i got in trouble.. grades slipped.. so i'm back to p4 system

but for cases: go to Zipzoomfly since they have shipping for free
ClubIT: Get your q6600 from there... $266 is really cheap for an OEM one..
Newegg: for pretty much everything else
