Go with the regular P5E, DDR3 is pointless on a Intel FSB based platform because the higher bandwidth is just bottlenecked by the FSB. For example, if the FSB is running at 333MHz (= 1333MHz quad pumped), then running the RAM above the speed of 333MHz (= 667MHz DDR) is pointless, because the FSB will restrict the RAM.
Go with 4GB of DDR2 800, so you have some room for overclocking on your Q6600.

I'm not a big fan of CM PSUs, I would look at the equivalent Hiper Type-R model.

Also, Antec 900 sucks ass

I dont like ddr3 because of the high costing memory. And if you added 2 more GBs you will be about do anything you want on it. Thats because of the about 1 gig of memory for vista lol
