Re: First Build...
Can you give me a total budget? We may be able to help you revise it even better if you tell us.
The board that you have chosen in your wish list is a very good overclocking board though. The DS3 and P6N are just as good overclockers but the P5B-E is worth the extra money becuase of the quality of components. Still it's fine.
I would suggest G.Skill HK's over HZ's as they are known to overclock to about the same speeds and it would save you money. Still the HZ's are awesome so no problem there. I still would only get an E6300 as you would never notice the difference between 6400 and 6300 really...but once again that's just my preference.
You do know you need a nice CPU cooler right? Look for an Arctic Freezer Pro 7, Big typhoon, Scythe, Zalman, or the best pretty much a Tuniq Tower.
EDIT: Disregard the RAM at only 5-5-5 or 6-6-6 at 1.8v as the G.Skill DOES work with all of the boards in this thread as well as just about board....that was an old problem which was intels fault but has been fixed with BIOS updates.
