This is kind of what I'm looking at right now.
about that tuniq tower, I think I might go with the ultra, they're the same price and look at the charts.

That looks like a good build. Don't know if you need to bother with it. But and operating system is another $100 if you actually buy it.

I can't even think of the 9800 being under 450.

And to HellsAngel, yes the TR-120 Extreme is a great HSF. But maybe a Tuniq Tower 120 would do fine with the Q6600 you're about to order.

look stay with 8800gts, i mean u wait for one thing other things out and etc.. just not wroth it imo. tuniq tower or TR 120 ultra and fan. personally TR very lil better perf and tuniq comes with fan and cheaper so tuniq prob better choice. then chuck in a mx-1 pad and call it a day. also aswell try get your hands on a G0 stepping that will lower your temps alot and give better overcloking.

Your project should be "Does the Internet cause Insanity?" I myself believe so.
