Processor-Q6600
Mobo-Abit Ip35 pro
GFX-8800 gt (evga sold out, next brand suggestion/site?)
PSU-Corsair CMPSU 520 HX
HDD-Seagate Barracude (not sure on size still,suggestions?)
Ram-Crucail Ballistix 2g (link to the recommended ones would be great)
Heatsink-Tuniq Tower 120
Compound-Arctic cooling MX2
