    Thinking of this for my system:

    eVGA nVidia 780i motherboard
    Intel Q6600(Quad Core) CPU
    2GB(2x1GB) DDR2-1066 OCZ Platinum Memory
    eVGA 8800GTS(G92) 512MB video card

    This will be an update to my current system, so I will be using the same case, hard drives, optical drives and power supply.

    Let me know what you think!

    mm... maybe u should wait some days to see if the new yorkfield cores come out (actually, they're just two wolfdales glued together :p)

    they're 45nm and feature 12mb cache memory
    and these new cpu's transistors are hafnium based, so it's supposed to perform better and be more power efficient


    the rest seems good, but why are u changing ur 3d board?

    I chose the Q6600 for the price. How before the Yorkfields are released?

    I am actually keeping my GTX, the GTS is going with the old system.
