Good mobo = £65, Good CPU cooler = £20, THEN a 8800GTS = £200

-->£285... Thats 85 quid over and its unlikely i'll be able to get the money.

Thanks again, i'll try and get the money.

ya q6600's own they hit 3.0 ghz easily but i've heard some require voltage increase some don't its odd... but i heard ppl mention auctions of them selling for 300-500 when its value is like 560$ i should have bought it at 300$ when i got the chance argh!!!
