Default My X-Mas Build

Okay, so far, I have (from xmas at my Dad's tonight):

DFI UT LanParty SLI-DR Expert (Should I sell it and get AN832-SLI?).
eVGA 6800GS (Was broken on arrival, will have pic tomorrow, I am thoroughly pissed. One of the capacitors is broken off).

Under the tree to be opened tomorrow:
AMD Opteron 165 (Unknown stepping).

In the mail, will receive Tuesday:
FSP 500 watt PSU
G.Skill DDR600 1GB (2x512mb) RAM
Thermaltake Big Typhoon
Thermaltake Smart Fan 1200mm (for typhoon)

What I already have:
Cooler Master Centurion 5 Case
WD Caviar 120GB IDE
Black Floppy Drive
DVD+CD-R/RW Combo Drive
4 120mm Case Fans
2 80mm Case Fans
2 UV lights
All cables Blue UV

Hopefully I can get the 6800GS RMA'ed shortly, and Stepped-Up to an eVGA 7800GT. I am also hoping the Expert doesn't kill my cpu. I can't wait to build this system, it's gonna be so kick ***! I will take pics of CPU, Video Card, Mobo, and Case tomorrow. For now, is the Asus A8N32-SLI better for overclocking than the Expert? I sure like that heatpipe cooling it has, plus I haven't heard of any instances where it has killed an processors.

Until tomorrow,

Happy Christma-Hanuk-Kawanza-Ramadan-akuh!
