I am building my first computer and have just bought a case.
I have bought the Antec Nine Hundred gaming case.
I am looking at-
-Asus P5Q-PRO Intel P45 MB DDR2 motherboard ( any feed back on this would be appreciated)
I am still not sure on the CPU as to wether a Quad or Duo will do. I only want the computer for gaming and multimedia such as movies and music.
But it will either be - Intel Core 2 Quad Q8400 CPU
or- Intel Core 2 Duo E8400 BOX CPU
So please give feed back on the topic.

-4096Mb 4Gb DDR2 1066 Memory Twin2X 2Gb DDR2 1066 8500 Corsair TWIN2X4096-8500C5

I am having trouble with a graphics card. I want something not to pricey but that will work good. I want to be able to watch blue ray movies and play games without problems. so please give me your suggestions.

As for the rest i am fairly confident i can manage that.
