    Id steer away from AMD if you can. Intel holds the performance crown currently. Even after AMD's Phenom release. Ill see what an Intel rig has to offer for your price range.

    They seem to be non-existent on Newegg. Everyone i tried adding to cart, says that they were out of stock when it got to the basket. :shadedshu

    well if you're going with a e6750 & a gigabyte p35 dq6, you'd have to grab an 3870 cause then the 8800gt would be out of the budget

    with that intel and the gigabyte mobo its accually cheaper, but will it run better then the amd 6000+ and asus board i mentioned?

    everything else looks good tho?
    i can do the e6750 and gigabyte p35

    btw crashnburn if u click on some of the 8800 gt's or 3870's they are accually there but if u see them all together they are not ;p

    similar

    i am getting the antec 900 as well.
    but i am going to use da E6600 its a bit more exp but its woth it it performance wise esp. if u get the go step edition which is perfect for OC. A friend of mine got speeds of 4.0 ghz stable with it once.(almost blew his pc up the second time)

    If your Still wanting a 700 watt OCZ PSU I'll sell you mine it's 3 months old from Newegg under warrenty I gaurentee it to work on delivery and if it dies lemme know within a resonable time and I'll give you your cash back, It's never been opened still sealed as in warrenty seal, it's been used for about 3 months, all wires, screws included. I'll charge $90 shipped

    Antec 900 Pros & Cons

    If you like your case nice and tidy (eg- wires tucked out of view) then the Antec 900 isn't the case for you. It's notorious for generating "spaghetti". I own one and I can testify as to how difficult it is to hide wires in that case. On the flip side, if you're going for air-cooling, the 900 is like a wind tunnel. Pros and cons I guess........
