Well I have this board and have been really happy with it so far...been running 10 months now great, its a great price for a decent board.

When I upgraded in November I upgraded from almost the exact old system you have now. So Im pretty surprised you waited this long...but either way. The other stuff above is okay but I would suggest the corsair power supply that waffle picked over the rosewill.
And the build that waffle put together is great...a really solid build as well. Unless your really intent on nvidia...but those 4850's are great. And as far as the q6600 its a great cpu, but the dual cores are great as well.

haha i was originally going to get that board. i was wondering about ati but i've never had one and i felt more on sticking with nvida but if i can get one at a decent price i wouldnt mind jumping on it. and as for the q6600 i have a friend that got his 2.4 to 3.0 with stock cooling so i'm pumped about that. and yes i've waited awhile and its time to upgrade, i just havent had time or money for it but i'm ready to build myself a good box

No... but there are a couple here...

I like AMD better because of their lack of harsh business strategies, but I'll recommend Intel if its better for the price..
