    I'd recommend the Gigabyte GA-P35-DS3L or the Abit IP35 instead of your current mobo choice. Also, the Corsair VX550W is a better choice compared to your current PSU. In addition, I recommend the E8500 over the Q6600, since it runs cooler, consumes less power and delivers greater performance than the quad-core chip. The case is an excellent one and recommended, although you should get an extra fan for your Raptor, since they get quite hot.
