Why not get a Q6600?

How about an X38 mobo?

Change mobo and get DDR2

Can you wait for the new cards that are going to be release on wednesday?

Why get SDD? You can get a VelociRaptor it is 1GB/$1 and performs like a SDD

So there would be no noticeable difference between a Q9450 and a Q6600?

And I understand that there won't be much difference between 4GB DDR2 and 4GB DDR3 but in 2 years time, surely its got to be worthwhile having the DDR3?

And what is the difference performance wise between a x38 or a x48.

What's the read/write speeds on a Velociraptor compared to a SSD?

And next week, thats the nvidia 280 or something isn't it.

Sorry about all of the questions. :-)
