Hi,

theoldnyx, here is what i recommend, because your current build is not good for gaming, for example the 8500gt, it is a really bad graphic cards for gaming although it supports direct x 10.

Proccessor:
Q6600
Newegg.com - Intel Core 2 Quad Q6600 Kentsfield 2.4GHz 2 x 4MB L2 Cache LGA 775 Processor - Retail
or
E6600
Newegg.com - Intel Core 2 Duo E6600 Conroe 2.4GHz 4M shared L2 Cache LGA 775 Processor - Retail

M.B:
Newegg.com - GIGABYTE GA-P35-DS3R LGA 775 Intel P35 ATX Intel Motherboard - Retail

RAM:
Newegg.com - Crucial Ballistix 2GB (2 x 1GB) 240-Pin DDR2 SDRAM DDR2 800 (PC2 6400) Dual Channel Kit Desktop Memory - Retail

G.C:
Newegg.com - EVGA 320-P2-N811-AR GeForce 8800GTS 320MB 320-bit GDDR3 PCI Express x16 HDCP Ready SLI Supported Video Card - Retail

Don't get E6600

Either get E6750 or Q6600

Newegg.com - Intel Core 2 Duo E6750 Conroe 2.66GHz 4M shared L2 Cache LGA 775 Processor - Retail

Newegg.com - Intel Core 2 Quad Q6600 Kentsfield 2.4GHz 2 x 4MB L2 Cache LGA 775 Processor - Retail

The P35 is cheaper, better, and it supports 1333MHz FSB and 45nm without BIOS update

P35-DS3R or the P5B Deluxe. Those are 2 very good motherboards.

ok the budget for the graphic card is not that much i think i will go for the 8600 gt and the same for the processor so if the Q6600 is not expensive i will go for it to but for the M.B i want the best in the market what ever this cost

What he said. If you decide to go quad core get it from clubIT because they guarantee the newest stepping which you definately want. Also a better video alternative than the 8500 if you cant afford an 8800 gts is the 1950pro.

The board i have the p35-ds3r is about 150 ish or less, the e6750 will run you about 185 or you can get a q6600 for around 300.

Darn, nobody wants the E6600 anymore! I would say just go with the Q6600 and a P35-DS3R or P5B Deluxe. 8600GT won't give you the option to go Hard-Core gaming.
