Are you going to be going sli? *cough*pointless*cough* If you arent, then get a cheaper motherboard. And get a DFI of MSI, Asus aint that good with AMD.
Are you gonna overclock? If not, then get a cheaper <$100 MSI motherboard.
If your gonna spend that much on RAM, then you might as well spend like $30 more and get 2 gigs. Thats overclocking RAM, thats why its so expensive.
Many people seem to be having trouble with Maxtor hard drives.
Get this one
Its SATAII, cheaper, and only 50GB less space. Western Digitals or Seagates are better quality.
