Id personally tone it down the the mobo and get a 7900 GT as it will play F.EA.R. Much better.

i'm pretty good at noticing these things.. but i didn't this time..

good idea.. no need for such a high end mobo when you can get much better performance from a cheaper mobo and a higher end gpu.

well the reason I got a high end mobo and not the top of the line gpu is because this gpu will get me by with what I want, and when the new direct X10 cards come out I will get 2 of them for SLI, and just wondering, should I order it tonight with the 3 day or next monday? the reason I ask is because If it ships say tommorow it wouldent get here in 3 days because of the weekend, and if it didnt get here it would be sitting somewhere at a UPS building, I dont know if that would be good bad or anything lol, so should I place the order tonight or wait for next monday?

thanks
