Default Would like to get an opinion on the upgrade.

Currently I am running an ECS GF 8200A motherboard with OCZ DDR2 800MHz ram 4x1GB and I am considering upgrading to this.
Newegg.com - MSI NF750-G55 AM3 NVIDIA nForce 750a SLI HDMI ATX AMD Motherboard
and
Newegg.com - CORSAIR XMS3 DHX 4GB (2 x 2GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1333 (PC3 10666) Dual Channel Kit Desktop Memory Model TW3X4G1333C9DHX
What does anyone think of this? It will be running a Phenom II X3 Heka 2.8Ghz.

Newegg.com - ASUS M4A785TD-V EVO AM3 AMD 785G HDMI ATX AMD Motherboard

Same price, but Free Shipping. Has 710 South Bridge, so it'll give you a chance to unlock that 4th core of the 720. I'd get this board, unless you're wanting to SLI, if that's what you want, you've got a pretty decent board picked out.

Actually I got saw that RAM for 85 so I bought it. and originally I didnt want to do SLI but I might be getting a little money to spend on my PC soon so I might pic up another GTX 260 to pair with the one I have.
