Yeah, I bought them so they'd be compatible, but don't have any need really to mess around with it. Still have my Macbook Pro if I want to have OSX goodness, but I use the same programs on both for everything, so not a lot of difference between Win7 and OSX in the end (for my uses)

MicroATX is amazing...was brutal to build with so little room for cable management and such, but in the end is well worth it.

stock q6600 is 2.4GHz
there's was a noticeable gain when I hit 3 GHz....i only bump up my clock speeds to 4.2GHz when I'm gaming :p

in photoshop....i don't notice much of a performance increase but then again, i don't do anything complicated

your right im probably fine stock, i multi task, while photoshoping files in the 1 to 2 gig range, and it doesnt slow down or give me a rainbow wheel. the slowest part is saving the massive files lol

what the chips!

why not just put:
i7 2600K
Asus P8P67 DELUXE
8GB
ATi 5670

instead of a bunch of information that is unnecessary?
