That setup is about the exact setup I would have had if I had waited a bit longer.

if you're not going SLI, then a Gigabyte K8NF is a good PCI-E motherboard

The ultra x-connect review in maxinum pc was not very good. The voltages were unstable. The neopower is good. Sounds like a good system.

what does the NF4 Ultra give you that the NF4 normal doesn't?
