There could of been improvement with the power supply and graphic card, but I guess that money, went to that expensive motherboard. Which is why I advise against those kind of motherboards, because the cheaper ones perform just as well, in terms of gaming and applications.

PSU will work but could have done bettter, its an $80 PSU so he didnt really cheap out, and i'm not a big fan of that case, too shiny imo lol

It's only 29A though, where as the XClio GOODPOWER 500w, has 33A, while being $50...even though it's cheap, it's also a great stable PSU for the money.

You might want to consider a newer more powerful power supply then...because you're pushing it, if you plan on overclocking that Q6600, along with a 9 series card.

Isn't he bottlenecking the 7600GS with the Striker Extreme?

Everything looks fine, but like b1gapl and Invisible has said that the money to your Striker Extreme could have went to a better set of RAM and PSU. Maybe even a better VGA. :rolleyes:

Well he got it for free, so it's only temporary, since he's looking into getting a 9 series.

fair enough, no point buying a 8800 if you want a 9 series card
