yeah maximus is an amazing board, you wont regret buying it if you do decide to get it. The stacker 830 is also an amazing case, i love it and couldnt imagine using another case.

Well, I am going to keep my computer until I have the money in the bank so I think that is as safe as I can be.

Thanks for the info also.

Sounds good to me. I will trust you on that. My ASUS board is meh....nothing special. 6000+ sucks at overclocking, I just leave it at stock because I can only get it up to 3.3 Ghz stable.

Q9450 or Q6600? or does someone at least have some more info on release date.

you haven't a financial clue... cashiers checks are about as safe as it gets. The institution that wrote the check(say, amscot, or bank of america) wouldn't write it unless they were paid in full.
