Also dont get a raptor, way overpriced. get a larger hd for cheaper.
q6600 ftw.
I use that monitor btw, and its amazing. definately get it
if you want a video card that will be at full load during games, and cant play on full settings of future games, then thats cool..

or you could get a GTX and it wont break a sweat with any current game.

Ok you dont need a stacker I learned that, although it's amazing, thats personal preference.. E6850 is pointless, if you want overclocking e6750, for performance q6600. Raptor pointless and loud. 8800gts 320 or gtx. Don't go for 640. A p5k is a good alternative motherboard which I've heard is good for o/c, MSI p6n is a good board w/ SLI also. Nice choice on the monitor. And yes, dont skimp your psu. Also get your copy of vista on ebay, i got a retail version of vista ultimate brand new for 180. It's loaded with people who get it from their company and dont need it.
