The dominators are great but overpriced. You can pick up some ocz or gskil 1600 cas8 much cheaper.

For now I would give it a go with just a single card as the 5870 can handle just about anything you throw at it. Save the cash for a second card for a upgrade later.

I prefer the p6t deluxe v2. Is it worth the extra $100? probably not but it has better cooling, better sound and dual gig nics.

I'm with Hefe and Muffin. Spend less on the memory and more on the mobo.

This is only $249.99 after a $30 mail-in rebate and it has free shipping and a Lifetime Warranty.

Do you really need the sound card? The onboard card is pretty good in the present. I would try the onboard card first and only buy the creative if I don't like it.
