Didn't think it mattered much since no one should get 12gb of RAM at DDR3 2000...also, if he's getting a GTX295, he can only get one more, so it would be x16/x16 for him.

But it's also cheaper, so matter of preference.

JoeyBoy: It comes with a stock hsf.

Yea, should be fine then. I just don't know why Asus' Deluxe version has less stuff like that compared to the normal P6T.

If you want a good aftermarket hsf, then get this:
Newegg.com - XIGMATEK HDT-S1283 120mm Rifle CPU Cooler - CPU Fans & Heatsinks

You'll need this bracket too:
Newegg.com - XIGMATEK ACK-I7361 CPU Cooler - CPU Fans & Heatsinks

Thanks for all the relies fellas!

After doing more research, it looks like I can definately save money just building my own.

I'll just continue to look at reviews and hopefully prices drop even more before I decide on a final setup.

You guys rock! Much thanks!

CHEERS!
