Hmm, so maybe I should get one that has more then enough watts for the GTS and will still be enough for the new 9 series correct so I don't have to upgrade again. Still undecided between E6600/E6750/Q6600.

Defintely get the quad core. They're so cheap now, it's unbelievable. Newegg has them for under $300 now.

That's exactly what I said, get quad core FTW. But with the quad core ill need more PSU watts, I'll need 3 120mm fans and thermal compound AND AF7 or another cooling fan. Also, that rosewill someone posted earlier, that is the same version of the one I orginally wanted, but its 550W instead of 600W I found.

I'll be happy with that one, do you think thats a good company? Rosewill? Got some good specs and reviews.

here it is, 600W
Newegg.com - Rosewill RP600V2-S-SL 600W SLI Ready ATX12V v2.01 Power Supply 115/230V CSA, CB, TUV, FCC, UL - Retail

Sweet, so I think I got it. I will get:

XFX 8800 GTS
Q6600 Quad Core
Rosewill PSU 600W or 650W
Gigabyte Intel P35 DS3R MotherBoard
Crucial Ballistix 2X1GB Sticks DDR2 800Mhz
Raidmax Smilodon Case (Love It!!!)
3 120MM Fans
Tuniq Tower 120
WD 250GB HD 7200 Sata 3.0Gb/S
AS5 Thermal Compound

Good right? How long will this setup last me? Can I upgrade to the 9 Series when it comes out, or will I have to upgrade something else to switch? Will I be able to play all the Games including Crysis at Full Settings?

Also, the monitor will be the 22" Dell Widescreen LCD

Hey Guys, It's me again. I ended up waiting on the computer thing and putting my money towards a car, but now I think it's time to get a new computer. I have changed a couple of things from the list above, please let me know what you think.
Before
XFX 8800 GTS
Q6600 Quad Core
Rosewill PSU 600W or 650W
Gigabyte Intel P35 DS3R Mobo
Crucial Ballistix 2X1GB DDR2
Raidmax Smilodon Case
3 120MM Fans
Tuniq Tower 120
WD 250GB HD 7200 Sata 3.0Gb/S
AS5 Thermal Compound


After
XFX 8800GT 512MB
Q6600 Quad
OCZ 700W GameXStream
Gigabyte P35 DS3R
G.Skill (2) 2X1GB DDR2 800Mhz
Raidmax Smilodon Extreme
None
None
WD 500GB HD 7200 Sata II
AS5 Compound



Major things is I changed to 8800GT 512MB, OCZ 700W PSU, 4GB G.Skill Ram, 500GB HD Sata II and got rid of the 3 120mm Fans cause the Extreme case has 2 120mm Fans and 3 80mm Fans. The Tuniq Tower 120 will not be used now as I wont be OCing now, at the moment, I will use the 4-5 fans included and AS5 Compound.


I also will be buying the Logitech MX Revolution Mouse and a new keyboard. What is better, Logitech G15 2 (New Version) or the Razer Lycosa?

I like both, but the Logitech G15 only has 1.1 ports and is orange, with practically useless monitor.

The Razer Lycosa is very nice blue color, thinner and a little smaller (Good thing) and has 1 2.0 port.

What do you guys think?

Someone is probably going to advise you to switch out the OCZ PSU as they have "reported" to have ripples....I've had no problems with my 600watts which is powering my system below. I also have a Corsair TX650W, no complaints there either.

They are "reported" to have ripples? Sorry but I'm not familiar with the word "ripples" what does that mean? If OCZ isn't a good brand, what is? Corsair? Rosewill? Coolermaster? Thermaltake? Plus is 500W enough? Or do I need 600-700W? I want to keep it lasting me a while so if I upgrade my card or something, I don't have to upgrade the psu also.
