I'm not a big fan of Cooler Master Power Supplies.

Look into the Corsair TX750W or TX850W unit.

Gotta agree with Damien, also if you gonna be using it mainly for gaming i would go for C2D

yeah i agree with oggie, c2d's are plenty for gaming and usually overclock higher then quads anyway. i took my old e8400 to 4.4Ghz 24/7 use and i have a E8500 now but waiting on the rest of my water cooling stuff before i start overclocking it. i've got it at 3.8 right now on the intel h/s/f
