ooo....that looks good right there. I thought your parents, wouldn't let you build one. Unless you're having this built.

Is that 4 gigs of RAM you're buying (or is that ram just severly overpriced over there?)? How about sticking with 2 gigs and getting an 8800 instead?

And I don't think I would use that psu for this unless you wouldn't overclock at all and no way would I use it with a quad core.

I know I will be shot for this - but on July 22nd the prices of all the Core 2 Duos are dropping - the Q6600 will be dropping to $266 and there are many other price drops, why not wait until then and maybe get a better CPU? The other thing I might change is teh CPU cooler - maybe get a slightly better cooler i.e. Tuniq Tower 120 or Scythe Infinity, which are both darned good coolers. Only ideas!
