Default New parts

I currently have:
Q6600
Nvidia GeForce 8800 GT
Power Supply (Dunno watts too lazy to check)

Looking to buy:

Motherboard
RAM
CPU Fan
and a Case

Don't really have anything in mind right now, just need a good mobo, about 4-6gb of ram and a nice case.

Any suggestions, budget is around $600 USD.

Computer is used for slight gaming, and everyday stuff. Nothing big.

It would be nice if the parts were from newegg.com or tigerdirect.com

Power supply is very important for a good build. Take a look and find out what you have.

Gigabyte UDR3 or a p5q pro, G.Skill DDR2 8000/8500s, Vendetta 2 or xigmatek HDT-1283...

Cases

CM 690
Haf 932 or 922
CM storm sniper
Antec 902\1200

I dont know prices for this stuff in USD but that all should come WELL within $600 USD, you could easily fit a nice silverstone fortress case into that price point.

I would suggest Asus for the mobo, they always have quality stuff, and plus the new express-gate feature is nice.
Ram depends on your mobo, but corsair is definitely my choice.
No idea about the cpu fan, but it doesnt have to be really expensive unless your overclocking.
for the case, i really like the design on this one: NZXT Apollo Black ATX Mid-Tower Case with Clear Side, Front USB, Firewire and Audio Ports APO-002 at TigerDirect.com

Honestly with your budget, i would be upping my GPU :P.
