Going to be another 70 days before that can happen. I'll be ordering the stuff in the next couple of days, but I am currently deployed so having a friend put everything together so that I know it works and will be coming home and OCing the heck out of the system.

Thanks in advance.

One of the reviewers for the board said he is using that memory so I'm sure it works.

I want one so bad now...I have not heard one bad thing that matters about most of the new boards yet. They are all supposed to be AMAZING overclockers...usually hitting around 500 FSB easy with no voltage change...and at that price? Pfft I just made 160 bucks in the past days working (summer job heh) and I will be buying one and selling my old board for 60 bucks as soon as I get my paycheck.

So I think I finally decided on a rig! I'm going with the Gigabyte P35-DS3R and the Cooler Master Stacker 832 (from the other post).

Obviously, I'm waiting for the July 22 price cut, which also gives me more time to collect more money to be more comfortable after spending $2k on a rig. I'm really excited about this rig as a whole, but especially using the switch to use between this rig and my old rig.

I also might purchase a 500GB internal HDD and put those 3 hdds in, Raid 5 I believe? Something like that where two are in Raid 0 and one backs those two up. I'll figure something out. This way I get the speed of Raid 0 but also have the reliability of having everything backed up on another HDD.
