asus mobo's are expensive and not really the best, go with the DFI lanparty ULTRA-D, possibly the best gaming mobo yet to date.

and get the eVGA 6800gt very nice card very very very nice card

DFI is an overclocker's dream. And all Athlon 64's have the same FSB, well, whatever it's called for AMD's. It's on-die, rated at 2000MHz.

DFi is better than asus at all purposes

and plus, if you're getting a pci-e 6800GT, then you need a pci-e board (such as the dfi lanparty ultra-d); that asus board is AGP

btw, how much are you getting those hyperX's for?
i'm asking b/c there might be better choices for the money
