gcard: EVGA GeForce 8800 GTS 640MB GDDR3 SLI Ready PCI Express Dual DVI HDTV HDCP Enabled Video Card 640-P2-N821-AR in Canada at TigerDirect.ca

hdd: Seagate 320GB 7200 16MB SATA-300 OEM Hard Drive ST3320620AS in Canada at TigerDirect.ca

mobo: MSI P965 Neo-F Intel Socket 775 ATX Motherboard Audio PCI Express Gigabit LAN USB 2.0 Serial ATA in Canada at TigerDirect.ca

cpu: Intel Core 2 Duo E6600 2.40GHz 4MB Cache 1066MHz FSB Conroe Dual-Core OEM Socket 775 Processor HH80557PH0564M in Canada at TigerDirect.ca

psu: Thermaltake ToughPower 550-Watt ATX 120mm Fan SATA Ready SLI Ready Power Supply W0097RU in Canada at TigerDirect.ca

ram: OCZ Platinum Revision-2 2048MB PC6400 DDR2 800MHz Dual Channel Memory (2 x 1024MB) OCZ2P800R22GK in Canada at TigerDirect.ca

there is no point getting an o/c gcard coz u can do it yourself and the cpu why get 2.66 when u can o/c a 2.4 to at least 3.2
you could even drop down to a e6420.

u might wanna hold back on the 2.66 ghz e6700, y would u give intel an extra 100$ for little less than 1.107 percent increase...... u could easily overclock say an e6600 way past that speed.... intel doesn't deserve that 100$, use it on urself and buy... hmm u only have a 160 gb hard drive so i guess.. and hey nice deal on that 2 GB RAM... seriously...
