Any chance you could check the two links there and tell me if the mobo and processor are compatible?.
I'm sure they are but i'm getting last minute order jitters!.

What about this?.

EVGA nForce 650i Ultra, Sockel 775, ATX
hardwareversand.de - Artikel-Information

Would that have enough slots to take a pci sound card and pci wifi card as well as the g card?.

I'm thinking, is overclocking a thing you can just set in the bios and forget about or do you have to continually monitor the machine?.

Is it an advanced use of a computer more suited to people who understand the technology rather than myself, more or less a novice when it comes to the intricate nature of the hardware?.

If it is a bit more than just setting the bios, then I'd be happy to stick with the original motherboard I mentioned.
But if needs be and the 650i nforce i mentioned there may be an option too pending your judgements of it's performance?.
