i would go with the DFI nF4 SLI-DR (expert or non-expert)

do not get XMS, as they are overpriced and not good OC'ers, go with OCZ if you OC OR CORSAIR VALUESELECT if you do not OC


everything else looks good, but i would save some money and go with the X2 4400+ then IF you can upgrade to a leadtek 7800GTX 512MB

Sounds good, because i had a hard time choosing a motherboard. I am also going to overclock so i will take that into considerating also. Im going to do some more research tonight. Thanks for your advice.

If you get DFI, stay away from corsair. Get OCZ or G.Skill.
