Ok so I just have a few questions about what hardware I should get for my computer. I am building a new computer next year and want to put a Intel Core 2 Extreme 3.0 in it as the processor. I do not know a lot about this processor so I would like to know what other hardware I should get to go with it. The motherboard is the main piece of hardware that I am interested in. Which motherboard goes best with this processor? If you have any other hardware recommendations with this processor let me know.

Thanks

What's your budget? We'll pick out good parts for you if you give us a budget.

Also, what are you using the computer for?

Computer will be used for gaming and since the processor alone cost basically $1,000. The most I would be willing to spend on this computer is probably $3,000-$4,000.

Wow, so your really looking for a high end system. Okay well i'll give it a shot.

Motherboard:
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16813131219

Ram:

It's very high quality ram, good latencies for what it is, and there 2gb sticks so if you ever felt the need to you could go 8gb later down the road.

Harddrive:

10,000 RPM, great company and this specific product has a great reputation.

Power Supply:

Maybe a little overkill, but you can be damm sure you'll have enough power to your system.

GFX Card:

Need i say more?

I left out the case, because if it's at least ATX and has good air flow, its really personal choice. And I don't want to impose my taste on you.
