never heard of it XD I suggest the Corsair 520HX modular PSU. Newegg.com - CORSAIR CMPSU-520HX ATX12V v2.2 and EPS12V 2.91 520W Power Supply 100 - 240 V UL, CUL, CE, CB, FCC Class B, TUV, CCC, C-tick - Retail
it rocks. Just got mine in the mail yesterday XD

oh just read the rich part. IMO buy the q6600 now then upgrade to the QX9450 in jan, then sell off your q6600 on ebay or something. lol.

If the Qx9450 isnt priced more than my car thats what I may do.

no bout 1100 lol. you seriously saying the QX9450 is 350$??? heck they dont have a QX proc now under 1000 -.- You sure its not just a Q9450 you're talkin about?

I'm just curious, I havent even looked into them So I actually want to know lol. If its 350$ I'm gonna grab one on release and ditch this B3 Q6600

Thats what I was thinkin. If the QX was going for 350 noone in their right mind would go for anything else I guess. Well imo anyhow. Not sayign the Q9450 isnt worth it. Seeing as I find the QX's kind of a waste of cash. all about preference I suppose. Didn't the QX6850 just drop from like 1300 to 1000$?

They are to expensive to wait for, maybe sometime later next year ill upgrade. For now i think a q6600 will do me fine. I will be probably be going with Corsair DDR2 2GB PC-6400/800 (2xXMS2 1GB) TWIN2X2048-6400C4DHX Ram.

Ok guys, I might buy this rig ealry next year when theres sales on and the new tech has forced the old tech prices down, i might consider a 780i or 790i depending on the price, also maybe a xfx 8800gts instead of a xfx 8800gt, depending on the price.
