I like it but I would get this ram instead. Cheaper and better timings. - OCZ Gold 6GB (3 x 2GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1600 (PC3 12800) Low Voltage Desktop Memory Model OCZ3G1600LV6GK - Desktop Memory

ASUS P6T Deluxe V2 :: INTEL i7 920 @3.4 :: XFX GTX260 :: 6gb Corsair 1600 :: Corsair 750TX :: TRUE 120 :: Samsung T240 24" :: Windows 7 X64

I do not accept support questions via PM

I'm no expert, but your case is an ATX, whereas your MoBo is a micro ATX. Make sure these will jive, because my guess is that they won't. But again, don't take my word for it

The 900 supports m-atx boards. Most ATX cases do.

I also agree with Hef on the ram. Much better choice
