Money is very much an object for me, so I'm trying to get the best bang for my buck. Do you have any suggestions?

My one question still stands for anyone knowledgeable on the subject:

I'm quite new to the game of custom PC'ing so I don't really know the first thing about overclocking. Can you get a substantial increase in performance power from oc'ing? Would it be worth getting the Tuniq Tower so that I can OC?

Overclocking a C2D can be like day and night, comparing stock and overclocked speeds. I would never go back to stock, after I've gotten mine to 3.0GHz+.

Yes....it would be very worth getting the Tuniq, if you're overclocking the Q6600.

definitely, ppl overclock to push value and juice out of things, like take the e4300, those push easily to 3.0ghz and thats the performance of the core 2 extreme x6800, a $1k CPU, u get its performance for $163 w/o the unlocked multiplier
