Most support Phenom II natively...

A decent Phenom II with a good 790GX or SB 750 would be a great Phenom II build

Looks good... I hope you are ordering the combo deal of the Board and CPU and not them separately...

For the PSU: Corsair 650tx, PC Power and Cooling 610w

Newegg.com - PC Power & Cooling S61EPS 610W Continuous @ 40°C EPS12V SLI Certified CrossFire Ready 80 PLUS Certified Active PFC Power Supply - Power Supplies

Get that.. its a beastly PSU, and its cheap! plus you get a free 4gb flash drive lol

Yeah im gonna combo the cpu and mobo.. just did that just to show links.. but if i order the two of the gskill for 8gb it should show and work as 8gb in x64 with no problem right? ive only used 4gb before... and nice PSU :P i was gonna go with the one alot of people been telling me which was the pink one from PC power & Cooling.. but hated the pink.. like your choice alot better....

Any idea what Heatsink/fan i should use for OC'in? and will that PSU be enough to run everything and my 4870 plus 5-6 fans in the case?

8GB is a bit overkill...4GB is fine..

PSU is more than sufficient...

um... Maybe the Xigmatek CPU Cooler or the Core Contact Freezer

Couldn't agree more, I have 4GB and it still next to never use more than 2gb, even when I try, lol, so just go with one set.

been awhile sense my last build... but most of you guys use Thermal right? does most of the newer cpu coolers come with a Thermal pad? or should it just already be clean for Thermal greese?

nah bro get one of these:

Newegg.com - XIGMATEK HDT-S1284EE 120mm Rifle CPU Cooler - CPU Fans & Heatsinks

Newegg.com - XIGMATEK HDT-S1283 120mm Rifle CPU Cooler - CPU Fans & Heatsinks

Been holding off on ordering this system.. wanted to make sure everything was good hehe... im having a problem choosing the memory.. i was told the memory i had before didnt run at 1066 that you had to put the memory volts up to 2.2-2.3 for it to run at 1066 so how would this memory do?
