It'll work, but i suggest you get a p35-ds3l motherboard instead of the 965 asus board. And spend an extra 10 bucks for some decent ddr2 800 instead of the 533 cheapo stuff.

HA! Actually, from 533 to 800 would make a good deal of difference. And the motherboard is iffy. On some sites it says it is Intel quad cpu ready, but I wouldn't trust that to guarantee compatibility, and the chipset isn't the best. Get the DS3L. I know you said don't recommend new parts, but these would be the best for making a guaranteed actual working system.

Otherwise, there is a chance that it may not work and then you'd not be in a good spot.

The 965 chipset SHOULD work, but it might require a bios flash. We know for a fact that the ds3l works out of the box with the q6600 thats why we suggest it.

Okay guys thanks.

So, what kind of FPS performance increase does fast ram do over slower ram? i swear it did nothing but help when OCing. But heres me talking away with my inferior knowledge

I don't know about fps performance, but it's like riding around on tires that are 1/2 flat. Having the right air pressure in the tires enhances handling ability & overall performance.

Not only that but the slower ram cant hit those higher speeds whereas with DDR2800 you can slow it down and then it will creep back up to its normal speed as you over clock. Cheapo ram can be a serious inhibitor during over clocking. Also the optical drive and video card are from some no name brands so they might not be great. The Egg has name brands for good prices so there is no logical reason to buy generic, especially when its something as critical as a video card.
