Get the quad from here since they guarantee the GO stepping.
ClubIT Product - Intel Core 2 Quad Q6600 G0 Stepping Kentsfield 2.40GHz 8MB L2 LGA 775 Processor Retail BX80562Q6600 SLACR
Get the ultra from microcenter since its about the same price as the gtx is.

Are you going to be oc at all?

I don't get why people keep saying Vista is so slow. I've been running it since march and I've never had memory usage/slow down problems. This thing is never ever sluggish. It's instantaneous.

ive tried vista ultimate twice , and i ended up going back to xp.

For gaming, xp is the best at the moment imo.
Sure dx10 is great, but the games that are out right now dont utilize dx 10 that much.

I have two legit copies of vista business x32 and vista business x64 and I cant bring myself to install either version - I've gone through vista like 3-4 times and I just dont like it as much as XP. Maybe the 5th time will be a charm.
