if you are using it for gaming the Q9550 and that mobo arent as good an option as an E8x00 and a P45 mobo. im in uk, the difference is £160 for a e8500 and 225 for a Q9550 and give the exact same performance in crysis

le sigh

-PSU is overkill
-Q9550 sucks for gaming
-get a p45 mobo
-get 4gb 1066 memory
-get 32mb not 16mb cache HDD
-you dont need a HDD cooler
-don't need a sound card
-don't get vista, get windows 7 rc

are you buying this from a built-to-order site?
