I just bought that combo, haven't received it yet, but from what members on here told, the biostar boards OC very nicely and are quite stable. Will be able to tell you from experience very soon.

Let me know how that works Thresh. I would love to know. I am leaning towards buying that combo and a little extra push will get it haha.

]Newegg.com - Suggested Products

Anyone suggest a better case for build?

I just went with this...Newegg.com - Rosewill Conqueror WBK Triple 120mm Fans Steel ATX Mid tower Computer Case with Side Panel - Computer Cases

65 bucks, free shipping, with promotional code it was 55 bucks. Comes with 3 120mm fans, and you have room to add another on the side.

Cases are mainly a matter of taste. I have learned from experience that I don't like fooling with doors on the front of a case, though.

Agreed somewhat. Though the door on that case is interchangeable. Right now my case opens to the left, but its on my right side, so that's annoying. But the case I posted can open either way. But yeah it's really preference.

Just noticed something, Thresh... the mobo in that combo is an AM2+ board. It won't run DDR3 RAM, it would have to be DDR2.

Ahh good catch. I didn't realize he was going for ddr3 ram. let me see if there's a cheaper combo that can run ddr3

edit: so they aren't offering any boards in the combo deals that support ddr3. But, i think ddr2 1066 would be more than plenty? 4 gigs of that speed ram would be pretty killer.

65 bucks, 45 after mir. at 5-5-5-15. 4 gigs

I'd stick with the first one, the second one is too low spec-ed for DDR2 1066

I just put together a build on Saturday using that Biostar 790gx with a Phenom II 940. I must say it's a nice board with good features. Had no problems, went together nicely.
