Ok guys I think I am going to go Intel. I want to get the Intel E6600, due to the fact that the AMD AM3/K8L won't be out until 2008. So please recommend a good Asus motherboard that can work with processor and also be able to upgrade to the core 2 extreme when I am ready to. Also I want it to be able to use all the other part I have on my last list so please recommend something and help me out please.

i would get this mobo instead:

evga 680i

and this ram instead:

xms ddr2 800 2x1gb

The nforce 4 was built for the 939 socket and doesn't wrok too well with the conroes (as far as ocing them), but the 680i is the newest nividia chipset for sli and is supposed to be just as good as an ocer as the p5b-deluxe is. And the ddr2 800 ram is better cause well its ddr2 800 and will give you a little more room to oc, and its the same price as the ram you posted after $40 mail in rebate .

Every thing else looks good to me. You will have a kick @$$ system too, but make sure you take advantage of that step up program with evga when you get some more money later.
