Default New builld, what do you think of this MoBo/CPU combo:

mobo
Newegg.com - ABIT IP35 Pro LGA 775 Intel P35 ATX Intel Motherboard - Retail

I like the inputs/outputs as well as the lan and optical in/out for audio.

cpu INTEL Core 2 Duo E6750 2.66GHz FSB1333MHz 4M LGA775 Retail BX80557E6750 CPU Retail at ZipZoomfly

The price seems good.

The price looks about right. I will be running my 8600gts on this thing. The case I bought comes with a seemingly good psu (450W) I think. I will worry about ram/other stuff later.

What do you think of the mobo/cpu combo?
Can I do better for about the same amount of $$$?

Thanks in advance.

If you plan on overclocking that's a very good combo. You might want to consider a different video card if you are a gamer though.

I have that MB and I love it. The layout is great. I haven't had a problem since.

Thanks guys, I think I will order now so I can work on this over the christmas break.
I do plan on overclocking, I'm not really that much into gaming so the 8600gts which I already own will do just fine.

Thanks again, I do like the motherboard as well.
