Building and customizing a PC's usually happens with what we want in mind, not what we need. If it was just we needed...well, then it wouldn't be much of a hobby.

I do agree, don't buy anything you won't use if you're not the type of person who can appreciate it or you simply don't want it. But if you want it....get it....
ok i made my mind about the quad core ...
now, my friend told me that 680i LT motherboard is great, well i dont know if i get it or a better one almost for the same price
help? (srry for all this questions but im really new at this stuff and i dont want to get something bad)

well, also considering that an i5 750 is faster and still cheaper than a q9550, why would you still want to go with a c2q build?

The Core i5 isn't compatible with the 680i LT, which isn't even a good board anyways.

680i LT is LGA 775, you need 1156.

oh ok. i assumed you were still going to go with a c2q because you were asking about that 680i mobo.

is there a site that youre going to buy from or a local shop or...?
