THANKS A BUNCH!

Wish list details

give or take
this is a draft, some parts are cheap elsewhere. But Newegg is better is you want it all together.

If you're looking for a simple case get the cooler master centurion 5 and use the saved money for a q6600. If hes not overclocking he will be OKAY with the stock fan in a hot room, you may want to buy an aftermarket cooler.

Case - Your choice
Motherboard - Gigabyte P35-DS3R (From zipzoomfly.com)
CPU - Intel Core 2 Duo E6750 2.66GHz
RAM - 2 x 1GB Patriot Extreme Performance DDR2-800
Graphic Card - EVGA 8800GTS 320MB (From zipzoomfly.com)
Power Supply - XClio GREATPOWER 550W
Hard Drive - Seagate Barracuda 7200.10 320GB
Optical Drive - Sony NEC Optiarc DVD Burner
Aftermarket HSF - Arctic Cooling Freezer 7 Pro

Without the case, it comes to about $1000, without shipping. I would also suggest you pick the case from zipzoomfly.com, as it will save you a lot of shipping charges.

thanks guys for the help! umm everyone seem to be recommending the mobo, Gigabyte P35-DS3R. but like is there one that supports 2 GPUs? i mean i dont know exactly what effects does having 2 GPUs have or if its necessary, but he kinda wants to add 2 of them in the future.

There is no need to have 2 GPUs, unless you're playing on really large resolutions, with a very large screen. One powerful GPU is good enough, against two lower models.

I dont think the quad is necessary.
I would go for the e6550, its cheaper and it can be OC easily to around 2.8-3.0 with that mobo.
And for the ram...how would crucial ballistix be compared to what you guys suggested?

Hey kur...does he need a monitor too?
