Default Re: First time builder/thoughts/suggestions?

Hi guys thanks for the feedback, much appreciated.

To Luke and Puddle jumper, i'm gonna be using this PC for playing upcoming games because my rig right now has a cheap 8600 gt.

To Prototype, i actually am buying BFGtech 8800GTS512 from a friend for 180. Its unopened and he won it in a TF2 contest so the price there doesn't matter.

Edit: Oh, before i forget, my dads friend who builds computers for gaming suggested an E6700 or a QX6700 over the Q6600, but seeing as i don't have a huge amount of money to blow on one part, what are some thoughts on the Q6600 or an Intel Core 2 Duo E8400 Wolfdale 3.0GHz.
