    Sounds great, however it didnt list the Core 2 Duo E6600 as compatible in this website , http://www.cqout.com/item.asp?id=2350151 , That doesnt mean its not but just incase I'd check it out. Where you buying from? If its Ebuyer then it may be worth splashing out an extra tenner or so on the power supply, but a 550 one should be adaquat. Plus if its Ebuyer be aware that me and two other friends bought motherboards from them and they were all faulty, I'm sure they sell working mobo's, but I'll never buy from them again. Have fun, sounds like a beast!

    Looks good to me. Should be a hell of a gaming machine when it's all built.

    question about the computer

    hey i posted a thread saying that i was going to buy a new computer and i wanted recomendations or what ppl thought of what im getting. i was wondering would i have an increase in performance if i changed the motherboard from the asus p5b deluxe to
    Asus P5N32-E SLI 775 QuadCore nF680i-SLI even though i dont have quadcore the normal atx e6600 core would still work in there, i just want to know because it also ables me to change my cpu at a later date to quadcore. but performance wise would it change anything at the moment.

    and also dose anyone know much about the case or should i opt for thermaltake armor full case. thanks alot
