AMD systems are way easier to put together than intel, fans are easy to install, ram settings i think are better. Plus amd has cheaper and smaller motherboard options. Im thinking about just selling my 6600conroe ( which is fast, but everything else with intel is crap ).

By march Intel's new 45nm Yorkfield quad cores will be out and they are supposed to be able to reach over 4ghz on air cooling.

isn't that the same as like 2.5ghz on AMD? Or does that not apply to dual/quad cores?

That only applied to Intel's Pentium 4's and Pentium D's. The Core 2 Duo/Quad processors are faster than Athlons or Phenoms of equal clock speed.For example a 2.2ghz Core 2 Duo is faster than a 2.2ghz Athlon X2.

Alright then, got some good opinions on the CPU. Pretty sure i'm sticking with AMD and going with the 6400+ BE.

But what about the other two items I need help with, the PSU and the motherboard? What are your opinions on the ones I picked out?

i second this ^^
SLI....your really only going to need it if you play on high resolution like 1080p
overclock the e6750 to 3.7 and it will DESTROY the 6400+
