Default Hey B1gapl And All

I was wondering, I still keep contemplating this Intel build. I really want the best I can for under 1k including OS tax and shipping to 92879. The reason I named B1gapl is because he made some recommendations before. not to take any favorites. So all help is appreciated. I want to Use the recommended p35 Mobo. And I want at least the e6320 CDC. So if you all could help me gather All the parts.
1. Case = preferabley with good cooling
2. Mobo = pref. p35
3. P/S = enough to handle upgrade for quad core later
4. Proc.= e6320 or better (CDC
5. DVD = any with lightscribe technology.
6. HD = 250gb+ 16mb cache
7. Proc cooler = recommendations?
8. RAM = 2gb more if possible.
any other parts I would need to make this system complete.
would like these to be all compatible. I realize I am asking this to be overclocked stabily and run some of the higher end games. I would like to have the Vista OS as well. Since my wife saw it she said this may be required. LOL. Thanks to any and all help. Hope I am not asking too much but I have been getting too overwhelmed and starting to get frustrated. Hope you can help me. Oh I have a newegg account so I am just gonna charge the crap out of it haha( so would like to get all the items there).. Enjoy now Pray later.. err pay.. Thanks again.

The gigabyte Ds3r is a good Non SLI mobo IMO.
Newegg.com - GIGABYTE GA-P35-DS3R LGA 775 Intel P35 ATX Intel Motherboard - Retail

I have seen people with these Hitachi hard drives. they are big and fast, a little on the pricey side. If its a little much then i have a 250gb Western Digital in my rig that is just great
Newegg.com - HITACHI Deskstar T7K500 HDT725050VLA360 (0A33437) 500GB 7200 RPM 16MB Cache SATA 3.0Gb/s Hard Drive - OEM

as for cpu cooler go with the Tuniq tower its the best around at the moment

Try this build. This was on my wish list for a cousin for under $1000 no monitor though.

HD

CD/DVD burner
Should cost you no more than $30, didn't add it because I thought you would like to pick the color.

OS
Newegg.com - Microsoft Windows Vista 64-Bit Home Premium for System Builders Single Pack DVD - OEM

$928.94 - $30 mail in rebate = 898.94 Total. That rebate should get you a CD/DVD burner and the rest for a nice case. Do you need a monitor and speaker or do you have one you will be using? If it wasn't for the Vista, I would of added the 8800GTS.

Heres one of my list for C2D builds, under $1k, adjusted to your criteria:

Case - Cooler Master Centurion 5 or Cooler Master Centurion 534
Motherboard - Gigabyte P35-DS3R
CPU - Intel Core 2 Duo E6320
RAM - 2 x 1GB G. Skill NQs
Graphics - Sapphire X1950XT 256MB(Only $150 after rebate.)
Power Supply - Rosewill RP550 550W
Hard drive - Western Digital 250GB 16mb cache
Optical drive - Sony NEC Optiarc DVD Burner
OS - Windows Vista Home Premium

With tax and shipping, it's $987.27...

I agree with what zmatt, said about going XP Pro. You can even save more by just going XP Home, and then upgrade to Vista, later on.

nice build.... i think xp home is pretty good.. plus there are some free downloads on microsofts website that makes it similar to pro, like remote desktop connection....

Fixed some links, I noticed he wanted a 250gb hard drive, and I put in a 160gb hard drive. Now the total with tax and shipping is $987.27...

If he was to go with XP Home, the total with tax and shipping, would be $963.67
