I've done a bunch of research on the motherboard, and all the reviews at Newegg seem good. I also found a nice review on my motherboard here: http://www.hardocp.com/article.html?art=NzQ4LDE=
Good catch on the SATA cable, I didn't know for sure if my motherboard came with one or not, so I planned on ordering one just to be safe. After looking a little more, I found out that it comes with two SATA cables.
The RAM... I do plan on overclocking, but not right away. I'll be too damn excited just to get the machine up and running, I won't have time to overclock.
Anything else you guys see that could use some fixing?
