Default pc build

What do you guys think of this? The ones pending on the bottom are the cpu's I am not sure of what I want yet. I really doubt I will get the e6700 since its almost $200 more than the e6600 and theres not much more power from it (well atleast not $200 more power worth).

if i were you i would save money by not getting that raptor and getting 2 gigs of ram instead.

also the psu seems a little overpriced go for a good 500 watt maybe an antec true power or something which will also save your money

and imo get the e6600 the price/performance is amazing

IMO, you should not even have the QX6700 in your mind if you aren't even getting 2GB RAM. Listen to fade and get the e6600. CPU cooler is pretty pointless unless you are planning on OC or you are a cool freak.

Everything else looks good.
