Yes, defiantly go for the q6600... pfft...e8400...


And x38 + 8800 gts g92 is fine too.

Hey guys, Is there anyway I can lower the price so it's closer to $1000?
It's about $1200 right now. Any advice would be appreciated.

#1- Get the Cooler Master 690 instead of the Antec 900
2- Get a p35 board, like the P35-DS3R.
3- get the Q6600 instead of the e8400.
4- The MSI 8800gts is going for 200 bucks after rebates so check it out at newegg.

Update your list so we know what u have decided on so far.

dont get an open box motherboard...it wont come with anything.
Will you be overclocking? like to the extreme or only a tad bit?
And by seeing your list im guessing your gonna be sticking with the 8400, which is ok since its your build.

I would just get two of these: CrazyPC Case Mods, Cooling, Gaming, and More.

You could also get some nice fans or something.

These two seem nice:
Newegg.com - Scythe SY1225SL12H 120mm "Slipstream" Case Fan - Case Fans
Newegg.com - Scythe SY1225SL12M 120mm "Slipstream" Case Fan - Case Fans

Maybe buy a webcam? Microphone, headphones, something like that? I can't think of anything important you could get.

If you upgraded the GPU to a 9800GTX I think you would have about $1000.

@krazyq What exactly would it come with? He seems to have everything.

You don't have to add anything, but if you want... get a q6600? No reason to get the e8400 imo if u aren't waiting for those new procs... and the q6600 is not much more.

Actually, I think I'll go with the Q6600. And about overclocking, probably not...but I might just a tad bit.

The mobo is out of stock...any other ideas?
