Yahoo answers is where all of the slow kids on the internet hang out. We make fun of things said there all the time. Listen to the experts, they know what they are talking about.

I'm telling you from personal experience that the Biostar is a great board, and explained why that person thinks Biostar is "eh".

With a 64-bit OS, if you are downloading Win7 RC, it has two different versions. Just make sure you download the 64-bit version.

Overclocking is milking more performance out of your processor, and that combination I have been recommending the whole time is great for overclocking. With your stock cooler, you won't be able to overclock TOO much, but you can at least get to 3.2ghz easily and not worry about temperatures.

EDIT: Also, as for editing your posts. If you just posted something, the general rule of thumb is to not post right after that one if no one has answered. Just edit the first of those two posts.

Biostar is a lot better than they used to be. I use a Biostar motherboard in my main rig, and it is an Overclocking beast. I would put it up against an ASUS or MSI any day of the week.

The CPU will come with a stock cooler that has thermal paste pre-applied, so you won't need any extra thermal paste.

Also, the case is awesome. Lots of people around here have used it, and we recommend it a lot. The PSU is pretty good for the cash as well.

The heatsink will have some pre-applied, but it would do you well to go ahead and get some in case you have to re-seat the heatsink (happens most of the time on a new build). Grab a tube of this:

Newegg.com - Tuniq TX-2 Cooling Thermal Compound - Thermal Compound / Grease

Personally, if I was going to get thermal paste, I would just go ahead and get the Core Contact as well, since it comes with it, lol. :P It will especially help with overclocking, keeping temps down.

Newegg.com - Sunbeam CR-CCTF 120 mm Core-Contact Freezer CPU Cooler W&#47;TX-2 - CPU Fans & Heatsinks

Either way works though.
