    Yep, ADD power, the 380 watts is way way to skinny !

    Nowadays good power is afordable, I use 1kw, not that I use it now, but you never know ......

    P.s. I like to over design as long as my wallet allows it :)

    I suggest that you should go with full tower P180 or P182 (very quite case) - to add more hard disks later, and at least 550W (750w is better) power supply. (some graphic cards require high power).

    Seems a reasonable spec to me. I run an Intel Quad core and happy with it. Not tried but your are supposed to be able to overclock them easily.

    Possible new system - comments?

    I'm looking to upgrade my current P4 3.0 HT computer with something multicore. A local supplier is currently running a special on the following system. The price is better than I can do building my own this time around.

    Here are the system basics. Any comment from users of this MB and processor would be appreciated. I will be using it primarily for Vegas and GV Edius.

    I admit very little knowledge of the current multicore architecture. Hyperthreaded Pentiums were the last place I had time to roll my own and learn a lot.

    Looking forward, I might want to add the new HDStorm card or NX to this and keep my current P4 Storm2 system intact.

    I will be adding my own video RAID array.

    Intel Core 2 Quad Q6600 2.4Ghz Mid-Tower

    Antec NSK4480 Black Mid-Tower Case w/ 380W Power Supply
    Intel DG33FB ATX Sound, VGA, Gigabit Ethernet
    Intel Core 2 Quad Q6600 2.4Ghz, 8MB Cache
    Apacer 2GB DDR 2 800Mhz
    Sony (Black) 1.44MB Floppy Disk Drive
    Seagate 500GB SATA II 300Mbps ST3500320AS 7200RPM
    Sony 16X Black DVD+/-RW
    Sony 1648 Black DVD-ROM
    EVGA 8800GT 512MB PCI Express VGA Card
    Microsoft Windows Vista Business -32-Bit (DVD) (Downgrade to XP if needed)
    Microsoft Wireless Dektop (Keyboard/Optical Mouse)

    Thanks everyone!
