Q6600 is still better, sure the e8400 performs better in games now, however the Q6600 will beat the e8400 by a way larger margin than the e8400 beats the Q6600 does now..

Plus in the 20% you do the other stuff, you'd be a lot better with the Q6600

I believe it was luke, a very techie guy.
wasn't me dude. The only recent thing i said about motherboard was asus tech support totally sucks, it is the worst i have ever dealt with.

you have done ur research, your list is already pretty good.

Perhaps the nzxt tempest for the case. It is like the antec 900 but has better wire management and even better cooling.

DFI's are far from sucky, Veedubfreak just manages to brick them haha (but when I do it for friends I haven't bricked any... yet )

But DFI boards are great overclockers, but most newbs have difficulty with overclocking itself, but the DFI has so many crazy options in them.

Maybe check out the Biostar I45, its a lovely board that has a world record now (if you have $20 extra bucks).

Ya, it supports CrossfireX. I just don't know why they don't mention it in the description.

yes. once quad core is more supported even more (future games are becoming better) 1-2 years hopefully dual core will be like a single core (eventually). like kobe said dont buy a p35. get the gigabyte EP45-DS3. also that psu is good but little expensive. instead get corsair 550VX. other than that everything is great.
