hey guys !!

I Need your help , I've been window-shopping for the past 3 weeks trying to get informed on the different kind of motherBoards, Ram, & CPU Processors to

buy for my first PC build, and after all that time I am still undecided so I need your help !!

This Build will be used, as a workstation, mainly music production and some video editing, so I definitely need a PC that's fast and can handle plugins that

eat up 500 mb for 1 damn guitar or bass string.... So as you can see the DAW programs are CPU Intensive and require alot of Ram that my old pc can't handle

MB : Looking for fast MB that handles ddr2 ram 1066 and higher, FSB 1333mhz to 1600mhz, lots of usb & sata ports, Fire wire, Overclock, did I mention fast? , future proof, 45nm compatible, audio card PCI slot... Im gonna install my own audio card, Don't really need SLI not into heavy gaming...(raid ?? is that
needed) >>> is this a good mb ?? http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx...-_-NA-_-NA-_-NA

CPU : Im really feeling those Intel quad core , how's the q6600 as a starter or the q9300 though it's not really overclockable like the Q6600, but it has 45nm,
what's the better choice ?
or should I make the long term investment and go with the Core 2 Quad q9450 or Q9550

Ram: fast, reliable ram compatible with MB atleast 4gig for the moment

Video Card : HMM !! Be honest... nothing over the top, just a good card that can handle some gaming but will not break the bank !!

Case : Don't know, kinda lost in this department but what should I look for ? for example ATX, full tower or mid-tower,........

PSU : how much power ? any recomendations ?

CPU heatsink ? which one ,
thermal compound ? artic silver???.....

HD: 2x WD caviar 500gig 7200rpm 16mb cache

Ok guys I think that's it, but Im gonna be honest with you guys It's a nightmare shopping for PC parts, with all the reviews ppl leave you can help but wonder

if you're making the right choice..

One more thing I am buying all my part from Newegg.com .... thanks !
