    Everything's fine and dandy, maybe worth considering Asus P5K Deluxe or abit IP35 Pro motherboards, and I think Crucial Ballistix RAM is cheaper and overclocks very well.

    Either go for the GTX, 2900xt or the 320mb version of this card... the extra 320MB has been proved to make very little difference now the new drivers are out.

    Could put the money u save from the graphics card into a bigger monitor

    Last i checked (yesterday) there was a €100/£70 difference between e6750 and q6600. With the shortage of quad enabled apps, that difference made up my mind
