I don't pay my power bill.. lol

One of the best monitors to get: SAMSUNG 226BW Black 22" 2 ms (GTG) Widescreen LCD Monitor 300 cd/m2 700:1(DC 3000:1)

well obviously if u can pay for a qx9770 go for it, with that unclocked multi it would oc like a champ...if u are going to upgrade ur cpu in less then a year then go for an e8400 if not then i would still go with a q6600 or q6700,,or if u can afford the qx9770.

I said I recommend the Q6700 for him because it overclocks with 10x multiplier and it will drop in price a whole lot come april which will make it even more cheap and it is already not that much more than a Q6600. I guess the Q6600 is good enough for his setup and I guess it will be ultimately cheaper.

I'm assuming ur using ddr2 (its the standard) ah 2gb crucial ballistix (timings of cl4-4-4-12) or g.skill...if u have a 64bit os u could get 4gb but its not needed at the moment,2gb is more then enough.
