Default Core 2 Quad Build - Thoughts?

Intel Q6600

Intel P5N-D

G. Skill 4GB (2x2GB) DDR2 800

I just bought a MSI 8800GT off of sLippe also.

What do you guys think? I have read several sources saying Intel is planning a next stage of price drops in the near future? Should I wait to buy the Q6600 then?

I'd go for a P45 if not going SLI. The 650i I have is far from impressive.

I am tempted to just because of the pin system Intel uses on their CPU coolers. It pisses me off, they are impossible to get into the motherboard.

P35 or P45 if you don't want dual gpu's.

If you want crossfire you need x38 or x48.

I've heard that Intel is cutting prices soon as well... there's an article on techreport today about it.
