How Does it Look? New Gaming Pc

Here is the Newegg wish list for my new pc.

http://secure.newegg.com/WishList/ [...] tTitle=New

I debated all the usual (Dual or Quad, AMD or Intel) , and I think I have picked out the best hardware available in the price range.

I?m pretty sure I want the Q6600, unless comments say otherwise

The gfx card and mobo I am really open to suggestions.

I am a gamer, also a Photoshop user as well as everything use. Usually multiple windows open doing a lot at one.

I may OC after a few months, more just for fun then power hungry. I already have a case, fans, HDD, and roms.

Would like this PC to last me 4ish years.

Thank ahead of time for any comment / suggestions.
