Default Whatcha guys think?

After all my posts about different vid cards and CPUs, I finally made my list of parts I'm DEFINITELY getting for my upgrade.

Motherboard: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16813128073 (this board is very upgradeable for when I have the cash for a Q6600)

CPU: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16819115031 (this should hold me for 6mouths till C2Q)

GPU: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16814150230 (I might buy another for SLI if needed... correction I WILL buy another cause I'm greedy )

Case: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16811119047 (I'm tired of clear side panels)

So whatcha guys think? I just want some opinions before I purchase.

(Merry Christmas too myself)

get the 8600GTS, it has LOTS more power for just a tad bit more money. the 8600GT is pretty weak, not much better than the 7600GT, and Sli wouldnt help too much

How bout this guy: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...2E16814127284R

It a little bit more expensive but I can handle it. Is it worth the extra 10-20$?

And "Open Box" good or bad?

EDIT: AHHH... see what you did Rudster, you made me second think my list :P
Now I'm gunna make a million changes and never gunna make this order lol

idk about MSI video cards... i personally would stray away from those if possible, im getting that XFX card but the XXX version, should be coming in the next few hours from newegg via UPS, once i get that ill be gaming and benching it all night and ill let you know what it can do, mind you its the XXX version which i believe just has higher factory clocks, so maybe you can oc that 8600 gt from XFX to my clocks, we'll see...

Oh, love the case. It's nice solid, and looks to be a decent cooler (don't know that part of it for sure). Overall nice build.
