a E6600 would not bottleneck a 8800GTX, and it would look great on that 19" moniter, 2ms would mean absolutely no ghosting and it would easily cope with the fast frame rates the 8800 is capable of

Actually there have been a few tests when it did bottleneck it at stock a bit. Still it wasn't bad and nothing a slight OC cant fix

I really, really, really need to learn how to oc. I've been in the computer addiction for about a year and I really want to learn how to overclock, does it require tools and results in messy work?

You'll find that overclocking a C2D is one of the easiest chips to clock, and if you haven't already ordered that monitor, i'd recommend this one, I'm getting it once I get a job haha

gay RAM? maybe you should keep dual channel turned off.
That way, they aren't interacting with each other instead of with the CPU.
