Just an update-
I ended up with some OCZ gold 2gigs and this Abit mobo-
Newegg.com - ABIT IP35-E LGA 775 Intel P35 ATX Intel Motherboard - Retail
A friend of mine works at a local PC store and I got the OCZ and mobo at store cost.
I got the Q6600 at Fry's because my friend couldn't match the price they had it for.
But I got the OCZ stuff for $110.00, so I'm pretty happy about it.
I actually had some issue with the mobo when I first got it. It was acting sort of strange. Wasn't reading the CPU correctly and reported it running at 1.8ghz.
But I installed Vista, and the thing flys way faster then my last rig with Vista. Vista detects the CPU properly and did right off the bat.
I didn't really need a super feature rich mobo, so I didn't really feel the need to buy stuff I'm not going to use. I just wanted a P35 mobo that's stable and is a good overclocker. Just needed 4 SATA ports, one IDE connecter for my DVD burner, and one PCIE-16x slot, because I'm never going to go SLI.
Needless to say I'm very happy with my over all purchase. I'm sticking with the stock heatsink for awhile. I'll start overclocking in about a month or so.
Tonight I plan on checking the RAM timing's and vultage to make sure they're set correctly.
