I just see them as cheaper HZs, with a bit tighter timings....but I think they're comparable to HZs in overclocking.

MOBO:
GIGABYTE GA-P35-DS3R LGA 775 Intel P35 ATX Intel Motherboard - Retail $129 (it doesn't support ddr3 unlike the mobo I chose before, but i don't think i'll need ddr3...)

HDD:
Seagate Barracuda 400GB with 16mb cache $99

VIDEO CARD:

How much will the e6600's cost after July 22? I thought e6750 and e6600 were the same except e6750 has 1333mhz fsb and e6600 has 1066mhz fsb...

Antec is not bad, but they've been slipping. I would suggest the XClio GREATPOWER 550w. No...it's not overkill.
