Ok so I submitted my order. The following is what I ended up with. I appreciate the advice and will continue to look for help when the parts come in and its time to build. Only one thing I wish I had done differently already is buy the AF7 along with my other stuff from Newegg because I would have had it all shipped together. I ordered from Newegg first and then realized that what I was saving buying from SVC was lost in the shipping cost.

Just a note on my attempt to purchase the CPU from Mwave.com. They messed up 3 times trying to process my credit card and so I ended up canceling the order with them. Not worth it to save $15 if they can't even get the order processed. And their support on the phone is pretty slow. Not a good experience for me, not sure if anyone else has had problems with this site.

So I have received everything except the cpu and the hsf. I decided I'd just go through Newegg for the processor as it was $225 and free 2-3 days shipping and everywhere else was anywhere from $206 - $230 and 7-9 days with a shipping fee. Then I went to Newegg and all of a sudden the price is back up to $235. Kind of a pain, I guess I could wait a few days for it to go down 10 bucks. But I was wondering, if I'm going to overclock, is there a significant difference in the E6550 and the E6750? The E6550 is around $180, seem like quite a bargain.

Oh and btw the MX518 mouse ROCKS!! Thanks for the suggestion I love it.

MX518 FTW!...best mouse for the money.

Theres no significant difference between the E6550 and E6750. The E6750 will just get to higher speeds, a little easier, but that does not mean the E6550 cannot.
