he finally birthday tomorrow so ordering parts

Intell Q6600 2.4 g0 stepping (was going for E6850 but changed my mind) Gigabyte X38-DS5 (might be $$$ but since it has pcie 2.0 goes the VGA card) 4x1gb corsair 6400 800Mhz ram (might just get 2gb at 1066) 8800 GT 512mb 320 gb HD 500watt antec earth p/s antec 3 quite super tower 22" benQ lcd (or anyother with equal value)

32bit vista home premium (i all ready know it cant "see" all of the 4gb of ram)

Any thoughts of what to get and what not to to save me some money?? I do mulimedia stuff, and visual design stuff (photoshop) and the most important i like to game.=p

Is everything there i need for a pretty good computer:)

Cheers

Nice setup, I personally wouldn't change anything out of it. I think you'll be pretty happy with it.
