Think about it, the PSU is supplying power to your whole system, all those shiny new components, it could be considered the most important part of a build. Unforunately, it is often overlooked and cheap unreliable unit can fail at the most inoppurtune time down the road. You need a bigger budget for this. $60 can get you a decent 500W OCZ unit.

The 8800GTS isn't really a great solution any more. It is outperformed by similarly priced cards such as the HD 4850.

You can get more for your money by going OEM. The SATA cables should have been included with the motherboard. And that HDD is IDE, better go with something else.

You only need water cooling in certain cases:
- You are an experienced overclocker and you know what you're doing. Overclocking a Q6600 to 3.0GHz does not mean you are an experienced overclocker.
- You have a decent budget and you have done your research on water cooling (If you had done your research, you would not be buying a kit)
- You have already maxed out on air cooling.

If you are really waiting till christmas to complete this than it is WAY better off to not even bother planning it now. There is no telling what kinda stuff and prices are available by then. I would just save the money and buy and build the whole thing at one time.

I clicked on your first link and almost shat myself dude...

DO NOT GET THAT POWMAX POWER SUPPLY, never, ever, EVER buy a Powmax, they are complete and utter garbage, you'll be lucky (like I was) if it doesn't take out any of your other components when it goes out on you, and I say when instead of if because it will go out on you, whether it takes a second, a day, a week, a month or 8 months (like mine), it will go out, it's a garbage psu, that's why it's $19.99 for a supposed 480 watts, I would've used the $25 rebate I got from them towards another psu when it failed, but I never even received the rebate...
