Default New build help plz!

Hey guys,

Ok so got around 300-400 to spend on a new processor,Motherboard,Ram.

I need it for High end gaming ( Want to play crysis when it comes out )
Need to get amazing FPS on source on all maps with specs pretty high.

I Have been looking at processors and are pretty much hooked on the e6600 which comes to about 200 so i would need a motherboard and RAM with that..

I would need it to be able to support the 8800 and vista....

I'll make a little list here of things i have got ect ect..

Processor -- ?
Motherboard --?
RAM --?
Graphics card -- I already own a geforce 7950 GT OC 512
PSU -- 580 Hiiper PSU SLI
Case -- ? Not in my priority as i can get one pretty easily although if i have spare cash then ok what ever!

Thanks!

Get something like an Asus P5B-E and 2 GB of G.Skill DDR2-800 (about 75 each) in addition to the E6600 and you'll have an awesome rig. That's ~350 for CPU, motherboard, and RAM.

How much storage do you need for the hard drive??

Get a hard drive like this:
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16822148140

And the DVD burner doesn't really matter, Plextor, Sony, Pioneer, Lite-On, and LG are good brands. This one should be good:
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16827106046

This motherboard is the P5B, not quite as good as the P5B-E, but still good:

Hey,

So this is what i am at,Not sure it will be final but a guideline.

Motherboard== ASUS P5B-E LG
Processor== Intel Core 2 Duo E6600 Socket 775 2.4GHz
Ram== Crucial CT2KIT12864AA667 2x1GB PC2-5300 NonECC CL5
DVD Drive== LiteOn 16x DVD+/-RW/RAM SATA beige drive & software
Hard drive== Seagate Barracuda 7200.9 160GB PATA
Graphics card== Geforce 7950 BFG OC (Already purchased)

Ok do they all connect?

Can they all support a Geforce 8800 as i would want to upgrade to a dx10 card.
Are there any bottle necks there?

What type of Case will i need to hold the mobo?

Do you think i should change any of them around?

Thanks.

Yes, it would work great.

I would get some faster RAM if you could. Some DDR2-800 (PC2-6400) would really be better.

What's your budget on a case?

Besides the RAM, looks good.

Well,

How much would some faster ram cost?

So far it is at 420 INC the ram which costs 80~

So i could stretch to 470 if my dad pays 400..
