Everything looks fine! :happy: I think that Anti-Static Wrist Strap is funny. :laughing: Well instead of getting that, you can save $6.00 and just touch metal before you touch your components. That $6.00 can be spent on food! While you're building your computer! :laughing: Oh and for the Q6600, if you want the G0 Stepping, either buy it from ClubIT or Tank Guys. They're guaranteed to have the G0 Stepping Quad Cores.

G0 stepping is well, I don't really know how to explain this. It's a stepping that makes the Quad-Cores run at a very good Idle temperature. Some other members on TF can explain the G0 stepping to you a bit more clearly.

Its just a newer revision of the chip. All you really need to know is that it will reduce temperatures slightly and power consumption.

After having both b3 and g0 stepping, there is roughly a 10 degree temp difference between the chips. They both cost the same amount but if you decide to overclock or sell the chip anytime in the future the g0 is going to be worth more. Also, i've read a lot of people having problems with the thumbscrews on the tuniq tower, personally i would suggest cutting out the sound card as the sound on the ds3r is very good and getting a thermalright ultra-120 extreme.

Cut out the wrist strap, drop on the HX620, get the HX520 and then get a better graphics card as the 7600GT really just doesn't cut the mustard nowadays!
