I know they're aren't quite true quad-core CPU's, but the whole thing is all on one chip so to be honest I could care less if it's two dual cores or one quad core.

Don't get the 1000w psu you will never need that much power!!! A 600W will do fine
Don't get WD drives get Seagate or Samsung
SLI is a waste just buy a 8800 ultra and then sell it when a better card comes along keep selling and buying to get the best performance from a single card

I don't think he's concerned about spending money on two Ultras if he has 5000.00 for this build, and trust me, he's gonna need them if he wants to play Crysis on 2560 x 1600 with all settings maxed.

If they do I am in!

EDIT: I beleive it also brings a sound card... imo not so bad of a deal just gotta see if that fuzion cpu clock is what i think it is...
Does the q6600 OEM come with a box like the one the regular q6600 does?
how to pt this simply... no.. OEM means Original Equiqment Manfucturer so yio would get just the q6600

I agree with this. I would think even 2x SLI Ultra would not manage Crysis at these settings. If this is the plan, buy an eVGA 8800 GTX or GTX Ultra, and use the step up programme for when a better, single card, comes out. It would also mean you don't have to use an Nvidia chipset motherboard, and could get, maybe, a P35 based one.
