    You should be able to build a pretty decent machine for that price! Why do you want Windows Vista??? I'd go for Win 7 if I were you.

    Looks good but its just too expensive for me :shock:

    WAIT FOR WINDOWS 7...Dont touch Vista its pants !!!. 7 is out in about a month anyway, plus not sure you would be able to just upgrade???
    Agree with above about a quad cpu, i built my machine and it has the Q6600 (2.4ghz) currently running at around 2.9ghz with just an arctic7 freezer pro on it.

    I agree, Vista's useless, i'm using win 7 RTM and never had any problems! I've got the same cpu and cooler as you but haven't bothered OC'ing it.

    Think I'll be going for a Ci7 for my next build!
