As of right now, the q6600 is the best cpu on the market as far as price vs performance. Lots of programs are multi threaded now to make use of multiple cores.

TT-120 extreme nice motherboard (blitz, striker, P5E)

Basically building intel will perform better overclock better and be better lol.

MX-2
2GBof crucia ballistix times two
two 8800GT's.

bnasically to overclock its increasing FSB. you key in a number reboot make sure everything works and viola!

Striker is overkill and close to 300 bucks. The evga 680i board is more than enough for SLI. Also, as im currently running SLI, a single GT card is more than enough, so i would advise sticking to a single GT and a p35 board. The abit you linked earlier is a good board to go with.
