a 3ghz x2 is friggin fast dude. i am not going to vouch for the quality of that mobo, i dont know anything about it. but the 6000 is an excellent cpu.
Awesome, thanks much.

I've used a lot of asus boards, even the really cheapie one's never gave me a problem, which is why I kinda like them. The reviews of this board on Newegg say its great, the only con on every list is, it won't allow you to OC.

Thanks all very much for the help, I was a little uncertain about this combo but it seems to be what im looking for.

I think for the price/quality and the reliability i've had with Asus vs other MOBO's, this is about perfect.

It's kinda hard not to have brand loyalty for some things tho, I love ATI video cards because the first good card I got was a Radeon X800 XL, and **** it was smokin' at the time.
