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.
