    Hello all, its been a while since I last posted here!
    I have decided its upgrade time since my PC is currently on its last legs.
    I've made a list of parts on ebuyer but I wasn't sure whether or not it will all be compatible with each other:

    Core duo E6600 4mb L2
    Asus P5W DH Deluxe
    OCZ 2GB DDR2-1000 PC2-8000 CL 5-5-5-15 PLATINUM
    XFX 8800 GTX
    Maxtor SATA 300gb
    Coolermaster eXtreme Power 650W PSU

    Im a diehard AMD fan but I've read so much about the overclocking capabilities of the e6600.
    Does anyone think its worth buying a 8800 gtx now? Only I've heard they're not actually dx10, just a souped up dx9.

    Any help will be much appriciated!
