Hey guys, this is my first post here on Toms Hardware. I've been reading a while and finally decided to ask. I've done quit a bit of research and just wanted to know what you guys thought about my build. I'm going to be using it mainly as a learning tool on overclocking and linux and just general computer stuff. But i wanted to future proof it a bit with the quad core.

Anyways, if you guys wouldn't mind taking a look at my list of components and seeing what you think. Any recommendations are appreciated.

no.

first rosewill psu's will kill your PC.

second, Q6600's are old, LGA775 is going to be discontinued in July/August and DDR2 is out aswell.

third, $150 more will get you an i7 PC.
