Might want a different Powersupply. Try OCZ, Antec, or Fortron.

I would recommend a different PSU, and also. I did not see you with a heatsink/watercooling option in the post above. I would recommend the Zalman CNPS9500 LED, they are about 63.99 on newegg, They are well worth it if you don't want to spend the cash for water cooling, and are wanting to overclock. Also as far as the PSU goes. Find something by OCZ they make great PSU's. Everything else looks wonderful. Good luck 2 u sir.

I agree. No need in spending the extra money for a good overclocker if you don't need it.

DFI are still better than MSI overall for SKT 939 boards, if you want a high end board you should use DFI boards

However MSI are still amazingly cheap and good.

Digitally connected LCds give better picture than analog (915n):
