So I FINALLY got everything together and working properly - currently running the q6600 at 3.2ghz with hardly any changes to anything... running at ~38C and prime95 tested... Probably could lower voltages even more but this is my first time and i'm going slow... But anyways - It was because of the ppl on this board (vern, vdub, etc) that I have this beautiful machine - which feels even better knowing i built it on my own... so Thank you!
Antec 900 (LOVE the case, wiring was a PITA though)
Q6600 @ 3.2ghz (want to get to 3.4-3.6.. dont know enough yet)
OCZ Reapers 800 running 1:1 (not sure what to set these at.. currently running 700mhz w/ factory timings)
Corsair 750tx (per your recommendations... turned out to be awesome)
Sapphire HD 4870
Samsung 22" 2ms Monitor
Xigmatek Rifle 120mm Cooler
Total=1600 after MIR=No Complaints from me... just very happy and proud of myself - didn't think I could do it.
Appreciate everything you guys helped me with, will return the favor by sticking around, learning more.. and hopefully giving you some time off by answering questions
