Looks good, however like we said before there's no point in getting the Q6700. It will not clock any better than the Q6600 therefore it's just wasted money.

And are you certain you are going to go SLI? Because the 750i is a great board, but there are better ones out there (intel chipset). The next gen cards are very expensive and extremely power hungry.

I would recommend a P45 chipset motherboard along with a single powerful GPU like the GTX 280 if you can afford it...or even the 9800GX2 which is better bang/buck than the GTX 280 at the moment.

Or with the P45 you could go 4850 crossfire which is looking like it may be faster than the GTX 280 and a heck of a lot cheaper.

Yes, I will probably be SLI'ing soon after I get it built. I know the 750i is a good board. What is better about the other boards than it?

I just noticed the 750i only has 4 sata ports. I need at least 5 or more. What are your suggestions for another mb with at least 5 and is able to sli?

I'll be going with the evga 780i.
