My main concerns is if the video card will work. What do you guys think? I'm a total noob when it comes to stuff like this. :thumbsup:

Greetings!

That looks like a nice system build you have there. I have the same processor and LOVE it! That video card should work fine for you on that board. If there are any problems be sure to check for the latest bios release.

I'm don't understand the price on your q6600. In newegg, it's like $255. But in your post, it's $155. I'm confused :thumbsup:

over_mind,

the way the post is displayed, is kind of confusing.
It looks like the price is above the component, when actually it's below it.

You're quite welcome, Mr_Snips.
Glad to help.

I would reconsider your choice of A-DATA, for your RAM.
I tried their 2x1GB Extreme Edition, and wasn't happy with it, at all.
It didn't perform as well, as expected.

I spent a few dollars more, and went with some Kingston HyperX, and that was a big improvement.
I would recommend spending a little more, and going with something from either Crucial, Kingston, OCZ, or Corsair.
I think you'll be happier, in the long run.

You might also want to consider something with a Cas Latency of 4, instead of 5.
It's a little faster RAM.

Just my 2˘ :thumbsup:

Changed it to Kingston Hyper X. Would it be a signifigant upgrade to use 8gb instead of 4gb? I will be running Vista 64bit

Depending on what you'll be doing, 4GB should be good to start with.
8 won't hurt, but you might not see any improvement, over 4.
If you see 4 isn't enough, you can always add more, later.

If you can afford it, go with 8GB.
Like I said, it won't hurt. :thumbsup:
