I keep waiting for a session I can't run so I have an excuse to build a couple of i7 machines. So far I haven't topped out.

Hope I'm posting in the appropriate place? I am new to the quad cpu's so here goes.

I already got an Asus P5K SE/EPU Board.
I need to run protools 8 and transfuser and stock plugins for now.
I just got the budget for componets as below.
I would really appriciate it if you could look over the list and confirm if all is OK so I can finally start on remixes.

Microsoft Windows XP Home OEM SP3
Z-Asus TA-250 Black/Silver Midi Case
800W Arianet Black HE Gaming PSU

Intel Core 2 Quad Q6600 2.4GHz 95W G0 Stepping (hopefully clock to 3ghz?)
Arctic Silver V Compound
Arctic Cooling Freezer 7 PRO (Socket LGA775)
Corsair 4GB Dominator DDR2 PC2-8500 1066Mhz Dual-Channel DDR2 (2x2GB) with fan
Graphics card: Point of View nVidia PCI-E 9400GT 512MB
system drive 500Gb Western Digital SATA2 - 16MB - 7200RPM
data drive 500Gb Western Digital SATA2 - 16MB - 7200RPM
LG GH22N40 22x DVDRW-RAM SATA Black
M-audio 2496 Delta
(may add firewire when I need to upgrade, just want to get some work done for now.)

Many thanks guys.

Anyone having this problem? I have the ASUS P5K DELUXE mb. Sometimes when I hit the power button the case lights up for a second then goes off and then starts up. Sometimes it starts right up, and other times case lights up for a second then goes off comes back on for a half a sec then I have to reset the power supply to get it started, sometimes many times.

As a thought, try switching power off at the wall socket switch if you have one for a few seconds (about 10), leaving lead plugger in will allow earth to discharge motherboard faster (if power cable is earthed.)

constantly switching on and off may cause spike through psu and may not allow board to discharge so motherboard components can remain stuck on.
