well, that mobo is fairly cheap as far as decent mobo's go... its about 100 bucks less than the leading ones.

its got some great reviews and newegg customers seem to love it :P it would match the cpu.

i personally have the m2n32-sli deluxe version, all in all, its about the same thing... just without some little extra features.

One more question do I need to replace my RAM if I get the X2 6000?

Right now I have DDR 3200 RAM

Yes, Crucial Ballistix ram DDR2 PC6400 is a favorite of this forum, pretty much the top choice for anybody here and the first thing they recommend. Newegg.com - Crucial Ballistix 2GB (2 x 1GB) 240-Pin DDR2 SDRAM DDR2 800 (PC2 6400) Dual Channel Kit Desktop Memory - Retail

2 gigs of Ram still enough in today's gaming world? I am sort of upgrading to get Obilvion back in line with all the full mods I have in it.
