Recommendation on my First every build.

Recommended Posts

I'm trying to build my first machine. I have only been working on Macs for the last 15 years and know very little about PC. But I have been looking for a project and needed to replace my current Powerpc G5. I have been trolling this site and reading all the article I can about this before I make the purchase. I'm pretty good at following instructions so I think my only issue seams to be hardware and stability of their combination. So any recommendation on this combo would be greatly appreciated.


- Intel Core 2 Quad Q6600 Kentsfield 2.4GHz LGA 775 Quad-Core Processor

- GIGABYTE GA-EP35-DS3L LGA 775 Intel P35 ATX Intel Motherboard

- EVGA 512-P3-N841-RX GeForce 8800GTS (G92) 512MB 256-bit GDDR3 PCI Express 2.0 x16 HDCP Ready SLI Supported Video Card

- Antec Sonata III

- LITE-ON 20X DVD±R DVD Burner with LightScribe Black SATA Model

- (2) Seagate Barracuda 7200.11 ST31000340AS 1TB 7200 RPM SATA 3.0Gb/s Hard Drives

- LINKSYS WMP300N 32-bit PCI Interface High-speed Wireless-N Wireless Adapter

- (2) CORSAIR 4GB (2 x 2GB) 240-Pin DDR2 SDRAM DDR2 800 (PC2 6400) Dual

Channel Kit

- ARCTIC COOLING Freezer 7 Pro 92mm CPU Cooler (Would like to overclock it a little)



So I think this would pretty much cover all my needs, but I would like to Add a bluetooth as well, I have several Bluetooth devices I sync with my Desktop. I don't think I will do any dual boot, mostly in OS X.
