Newegg.com - EVGA 320-P2-N811-AR GeForce 8800GTS 320MB 320-bit GDDR3 PCI Express x16 HDCP Video Card - Retail
Newegg.com - GIGABYTE GA-P35-S3L LGA 775 Intel P35 ATX Intel Motherboard - Retail

You know that Crucial RAM looks real ugly on newegg pictures. But in real life it's very sexy. Looks good.

They are two completely different brands and modules? The crucial is very overclockable.

These overclockers know things about brands and parts you'll never figure out by looking at the box.

The setup looks good. You'll be able to play games without graphical problems. Get the Ballistic or G.Skill 2GB ram. They're what people on these forums recommend for overclocking.

The main differences between the S3L and the DS3R, is that the S3L has 4 less SATA ports, no support for RAID, and doesn't have that Ultra Durable feature.
