    gotta love that e-gorce 8800gts, Intell q6600, and those 8gigs of ram

    Don't know what you would use 8 gigs of ram for, but if it's all compatible, then it sure looks like it'll be a decent computer..

    Not sure if you should go for Vista ultimate, probably premium should be enuf.

    4Gig of ram should be more than enough.

    Make sure you put some pink LED fans in there! X-D *woof*

    From what i've been reading recently regarding x-fi cards vs alc 889a onboard sound under vista... I'd save the money and use the onboard sound. something about Vista not supporting hardware acceleration for sound and creatives drivers being crap.

    Its your money... do the research :P
