Well if you are not going for triple channel ram it is defeating the purpose of getting a i7 920. If you cannot swing it then drop back down to a i5 750 with a 1156 motherboard to stay in budget. The 920 is definitely going to take you over budget.

You want something like this:
OCZ 6gb (3x2GB) DDR3 1600MHz/PC3-12800 Gold XTC Triple Channel Memory Kit for i7 Motherboard - Ebuyer

or this weekly special:
Corsair XMS3 6GB (3x2GB) DDR3 PC3-12800C9 (1600MHz) Tri-Channel (TR3X6G1600C9) [] Memory DDR3 Tri-Channel - PC3-12800

I'll stretch for this

Corsair XMS3 6GB (3x2GB) DDR3 PC3-12800C9 (1600MHz) Tri-Channel (TR3X6G1600C9) [] Memory DDR3 Tri-Channel - PC3-12800

I'm at 677 which i dont think is bad considering. Just add on a 223rZ 22" Samsung for 99 and i'll be singing!
Thanx.

Yes, that mobo is almost the same. Except for the ram slots, chipset, socket size and supported cpu's.

Nvidia 3D is a joke, it almost works right but every game I've tried it on has something that just doesn't line up right. But it will successfully give you a headache.

I got all the parts on Saturday morning and finished building it by about 3-4pm.. Everything's working great and the water cooling eco kit works a charm.. I haven't over clocked it yet but i wanna see how games like Crysis and Mass effect work on it B4 i start doing that.. As for the 3D kit i'm still going to try it out eventually. Thanks again guys. OH! does any one know any formatting software.. The in built one in Win7 wont format one of the additional drives i put in the case..
