Are you sure you wanted the GIGABYTE GA-P35C-DS3R and not the GA-P35-DS3R?

The latter is the one that seems to be more recommended around here.

All in all it looks a lot like my soon-to-be build with a different PSU being the only main difference.

Good luck! Let us know how it turns out.

Everything looks good, but kill the P35C, because it will be some time before DDR3 is considered. The regular P35-DS3R is just fine.

I think you ordered it wrong for the mobo.

why the wrong mobo? It's the one that supports 45nm processors in the future right?

i don't think the glitches or w/e are significant, DDR3 shouldn't be mainstream until 32nm anyway

Yes..but you don't need the P35C, that has DDR2 and DDR3 slots. The regular P35-DS3R is good enough, and also future ready.

wait, so the P35-DS3R also supports 45nm processors? I swore I was told that the P35c was the only one that supported it.

So what's the difference? Is it that bad of a mobo or I just wasted $20 bucks?
