Awesome system...but I think people will suggest the MSI P6N 650i, instead of the ASUS P5N-E SLI. I have the ASUS, and it's a little buggy. I would also suggest the Gigabyte 965P-DS3, it's way cheaper now, and can overclock great.

Heh nice choice on the ram there

I'm going to agree with getting an MSI P6N 650i. They are cheaper, and the newer version. Get the P6N or a DS3.

However, in no way is the Asus P5N 650i bad and you could get one and be just fine with it. I just suggest the P6N instead.

The DS3 is still today an excellent board that you can't go wrong with. Any one of those 3 boards and you will be happy.
