That is what NCIX charges to assemble and install the OS.

What's the difference between the QX and Q? I know the QX is "extreme" but what exactly is the difference?
The QX has an unlocked multiplier. I would save some money and go with the Q9650.

1) (casual) gaming , then more less-intensive stuff like Photoshop. I'd still use it for University whenever I have to write an essay or other simple stuff like that on the PC.
2) I don't plan on immediately doing that, but it's something I'd probably think about doing in the future.
If you are going to be doing some graphic rendering and other stuff, than a Quad Core is for you.

Right now it would mainly be used on a 22" monitor (I plan on upgrading to at least 27" fairly soon), but I'd also like to be able to plug it into my 40" Samsung LCD every now and then.
If you can afford it I would go with the 4870x2.

EVGA 9600 GT 512MB - 650MHz - 1800MHz - 1626MHz | Seagate 'Cuda 250GB 7200rpm SATA2 | Corsair VX550 | CM690 - Custom Atomic Orange Pearl
