You can save money and not buy norton.
You can use Avast or AVG both free.

You can also save money on thermal paste and get this one. Its still Artic silver 5.

Well im not wanting to cut performance out whith the budgeting. I would like to stick with an 8800gtx. I do not plan on sli'ing anytime soon, and would the p5b-e or deluxe last me for a while? Also are all my componants good for stable and safe OC'ing. I want to stay with my case for cooling and space for upgrades and expasion options.
