Is as follows ( comments appreciated, also if you know the answer to my questions in each section, please answer them, much appreciated! ):
( BTW I already have a EVGA 8800 GTX and 2 gigs of Gskill ddr 800 HZ ram )
Processor: waiting for July 22nd to either getting the e6750 or the infamous q6600. I'm 70% leaning towards the q6600, if the e6750 is still 200 dollars on July 22nd, then FOR SURE Im getting the q6600. Does it matter if I order OEM or retail processors?
Newegg.com - GIGABYTE GA-P35C-DS3R LGA 775 Intel P35 ATX Intel Motherboard - Retail
( dunno if the fact that it can support DDR2 or DDR3 means its more buggier like b1gap said )
Thermaltake Armor Series VA8000BWS Black Aluminum / Steel ATX Full Tower Computer Case - Retail
Newegg.com - Thermaltake Armor Series VA8000BWS Black Aluminum / Steel ATX Full Tower Computer Case - Retail
( couldn't really find a better full tower case, the reviews ranged from very good to great...still it has its flaws...and the front view is kinda plain, this model has no side fan, and I fear a GTX will be blocked with the side fan )
Tuniq Tower 120
Newegg.com - Tuniq Tower 120 P4 & K8 CPU Cooler - Retail
( might as well just get it from newegg to save on shipping, at svc its only 5 bucks cheaper... )
Newegg.com - Seagate Barracuda 7200.10 (Perpendicular Recording) ST3320620A 320GB 7200 RPM 16MB Cache IDE Ultra ATA100 Hard Drive - OEM
( Sad decision to leave the WD raptor...but the seagate is a much better deal I guess...is this the right url for the model everyone gets? How hard is to Raid 0 them? I really want too eventually...but just 1 for now since they are oh so cheap )
Also do I get the OEM or Retail model?
Anyone recommend any good ones? I want that Sony DVD RW blah blah drive that is like 40-50 something, and maybe another good brand DVD drive

Corsair HX Series CMPSU-620HX 620W Power Supply at ZipZoomfly
( hopefully it will provide enough power )
and this dandy MX-1 Thermal paste that b1gap recommends over AS5
Newegg.com - ARCTIC COOLING MX-1 Thermal Compound - Retail
( I just need 1 right?....do I even use the thermal paste provided by the tuniq tower or is that one generic and sucks? )
X-Fi xtreme gamer 7.1 soundcard, already got my 5.1 speakers that I never use ( switch em to 2.0 since the rear speakers are too inconvinant )
Newegg.com - Creative Sound Blaster X-Fi XtremeGamer 7.1 Channels 24-bit 96KHz PCI Interface Sound Card - Retail
anything else I'm missing?
