Agreed with JRatcliffe.

Don't get the e6700. It's only about 200MHz faster than the e6600, but almost $100 more. So just get the e6600 and overclock.

Please for the love of god, don't use the PSU included with the case. The PSU is the most important part of the system, because if it fails, it could take down your whole system.

Wait, where are you buying this? $1900 for those parts?
