I would of replaced the motherboard with the MSI P6N SLI-FI. But that's just me. And I'd get the Seagate 7200.10 320gb HD, instead. Also the e6420 is the better choice. It's basically the same price, with 2mb more cache.

I agree..looks great except I'd avoid the ECS and get the MSI that b1gapl mentioned

All of those are good boards but I personally have only heard nothinbg but good things about the P6N regular and the fact that I hate paying for Fatal1ty's name.

I personally like the 650i chipset over the 965 becuase of how cheap you can get a well made board that overclocks well.

Yes I wanted to say the same thing. The DS3 is still a great board but it had it's fun and the MSI P6N with minor tweaking can reach very high overclocks as well, handles heat better, supports more RAID, and supports SLI all for 120 bucks. That's a steal lol
