8600gts consumes as much power as the 8800gs because they use that extra power plug

I have another question: would it be a good idea to buy say E2180 instead of Q6600, wait couple of months and then upgrade to that quad or others that might be available by then?

Well all the good quads are out now, and no extra Quads will be coming within a few months (maybe a few weeks though )

only thing happening in the next few months are those Quarterly Price Cuts

Yes, I need DVD-RW drive. As to the PSU I'll get 520hx or PC P&C 610
or 550vx depending on the price.

Thanks all for the input!
not sure how it would fit? it will fit just fine. and GS is way better choice than the 86xx anything. if you dont game much, save some money, get a smaller card and then get a 32mb cache hdd

Oh, wish I could buy it !!! You guys are lucky in the US.
Thanks for the info on cm-690. I'll add it to my list.

As fore the graphics I'm not decided yet. 8800GS is much more expensive
here than 8600GT. I'm also considering 8500GT, lol.

pick up a 7900gs then...i think it's the same price as the 8600gt (and performes better) it might even be cheaper then it.

If you live in canada then buy from directcanada or ncix, they are the best for us.
