I am a heavy gamer and love quality music on my computer. I am getting a last gen video card now and saving the $500 for next gen G92 awesomeness I think the 7600 will suffice until then
My Budget is around $2000 but what I dont spend I will save for future upgrades Need a good suggestion for Motherboard and Power Supply

Yeah it's nice, it'll last you a good 3-5 years. I've wasted money that I shouldn't have wasted too.

huh? 3 or 5 years? why would a computer not last longer than 5 years. unless you overclocked it or stuff, itll last at LEAST 10 years.

Nah nah, it works, it just doesn't run everything. I spent $2000 on this computer. It's less than $500 worth garbage now.

Why you don't get Q6600 instead of E6850 ?
Newegg.com - Intel Core 2 Quad Q6600 Kentsfield 2.4GHz 2 x 4MB L2 Cache LGA 775 Processor - Retail

And I recommend this motherboard

Agreed with maroon. Along with the Q6600, I would suggest the Tuniq. This will do a better job cooling the quad core, than the CNPS9700.

I would suggest you change the RAM set to the Crucial Ballistix DDR2-800 because, for the price, you can't beat it's performance.

Why not replace that Raptor, with another WD 750GB.....because the WD 750GB hard drives, are as fast as the Raptor. You'll get a ton of extra space.

For the power supply, I would suggest the PC Power & Cooling Silencer 610W. It can power any system, easily.
...You can get it cheaper, at ZipZoomFly.com:
PC POWER and COOLING EPS12V S61EPS Power Supply Retail at ZipZoomfly

It's called upgrading from a stock cooler. Stock cooler with stock thermal paste won't be like having a Tuniq Tower 120 and MX-1. The temperatures will drop dramatically with the TT120 and MX-1.
