will the cooling for the system be alright nothing will over heat or anything right?

now 200 dollars for a OP is quite alot I think, So maybe should i try and download it and burn it on to a cd or something, I could ask my step dad in sweden to download it for me and put it on a cd and send it to me (im in usa) lol

another Q.
Im a total noob when it comes to building etc and shit so i was wondering does anyone have like a guide on how to build a pc and put all the items together etc.

Thanks in advance to all those helpers which will hopefully help me

If your going to go for the quad core, make it the g0 step, as many places don't charge anything more for it, and yet, it offers less heat to your system, running cooler.

For that amount, it doesn't seem like a bad system at all. Though, I personally wouldn't choose Vista yet, since a lot of the programs I use wouldn't work.

All the parts would fit as far as I can tell. Definietly a learning experience if you haven't done it before

Its basically a new revision of the Quad Core which is cooler than the B3 stepping that came before it.
It consumes less power to run, and so, delivers less heat, and as a result runs cooler.

Many sites now list it next to the original Quad Core as a seperate processor.

You might want to hook yourself up with some WC if you are going to OC, and get the 680i chipset, the A1 model. It is much better for OCing than the 650i.

I looked on tigerdirect.com and it had the Q6600 and an exact same title below it costing 2x more, is that one it?

Why not get the Intel Core 2 Duo E6850 Conroe 3.0GHz for $299 on newegg.com instead of Intel Core 2 Quad Q6600 Processor - 2.40GHz? I mean yes it’s a Quead..etc, but right now there is almost no games, maybe very little programs that use all 4 cores…and I am very sure the games that will be coming out for the next year will mainly be using no more then 2 cores. I mean look on the bright side of getting the E6850 It haz 3.0GHZ, you can @ much more then the 2.4 and FSB is 1333MHz.

Just something to think about

+ Prob in a year some new crazy processor will come out that will leave the E6850 and Q6600 in the dust and most of us will have to upgrade again. hehehe
