    Help me upgrade

    I have been out of the loop for a long time. My system is old and has not worked right for a month now. I have been running this setup:

    EVGA 680i MB
    E6600 CPU
    8800 GTX
    4G Dominator mem

    I just bought a GTX 460 to upgrade this system and I got the OK from the wife to upgrade the rest for $400. Please advise what the best MB, CPU and Memory for gaming under $400? I have the rest of the stuff (case, PS 750, HD's etc.). Thanks in advance, I have to order right away because of work/travel.

    E6600 C2D @ 3.575Ghz
    EVGA 8800 GTX @ 700/1100
    2G Dominator 1066 @ 1167

    Very nice, what do you think of me buying on eBay? I do a lot of purchases there but not on computer stuff yet. That way I could get more Ram, what do you suggest if I spending a little more on the Ram?

    8GB is kinda the sweet spot these days, since the RAM prices have dropped. but get 4GBx2 instead of 2GBx4 if possible. Cannot say anything about buying off Ebay though. It's a choice you have to make.
