Default Some questions

Well my first question would be about the mobo.
This is the mobo that I am looking at right now Newegg.com - GIGABYTE GA-EP35-DS3L LGA 775 Intel P35 ATX Intel Motherboard - Intel Motherboards, but really I have no clue what to look for in a mobo. I need it to run a q6600 and 2 gigs of ram. I plan to overclock, nothing too crazy though, I was planning on something like a 3.2ghz oc. (What type of fan do I need to do that? Would a freezer 7 pro suffice?) I dont plan to SLI, what mobo would you recomend?


My second question would be what is the cheapest PSU I could buy that would safely run a 8800gts G92 and the Q6600 @ 3.2, and OCZ reaper 2gig.
This is the PSU ive been looking at, but its probably overkill Newegg.com - CORSAIR CMPSU-650TX 650W ATX12V / EPS12V Power Supply 100 - 240 V UL, CE, CB, TUV, FCC, CCC - Power Supplies

Thats a great board for overclocking on the cheap. Spend the extra few bucks and get the zigmatech rifle if you get the q6600.

Alright, ive seen the xigmatek, thats definitely an option.


Would you reccomend a cheaper power supply that would be able to power the build?

DO NOT skimp on the psu

I would stay w/ the corsair though for an extra $10 bucks. You can also look into some silverstone psu's

the extra 20 bucks for this is probably worth it. I love mine. that is if you ever plan on going with more than 1 video card.
