THE 450w psu thats comes with that case won't be enough. Get a 500W+ from OCZ/Seasonic/Antec/Hiper etc. And you should get 800MHz RAM if you're an OC'er. Also get a mobo with the P35 chipset.

Make sure the PSU has at least 30 Amps on the 12v+ line as well. My 460 Watt enermax has 33, and it powers my 8800GT with no issues.

Yep, the amperage on the 12V rail is actually more important than the actual wattage. My PSU has 32A on dual 12V rails and it powers my rig just fine.

It should tell you in the specifications. There is also a label on the side of every PSU.

How is it that you overclocked your Q6600 so much?

Some people OC even further, up to 3.6, I haven't reached the limit yet. The G0 revisions are very good OC'ers. Do you have one?

It's basically just a new revision that improves power consumption, and little issues etc. Less power conumption means lower temps and higher OCs.
