Looks good to me... but the Corsair Value Select RAM might not be so good for overclocking. If you don't plan to overclock at all, then it'll be just fine.. But if you're looking to squeeze a bit more performance out of this down the road, you might want to invest in some higher quality sticks.

Yes, I would also be willing to trade my bike for that system. Mind you, it's a ratbagged 5 year old Norco Bush Pilot that's been taken off numerous 4-5 foot drops, which is pretty hard on a nearly 100% stock bike with no suspension

Looks good.. Should do rather well.. I'm not a big fan of MSI, but I haven't heard anything bad about their newer P4 boards..

I don't know off the top of my head if that board will Dual Channel the DDR, however, with the value select ram, I would be carefull about that.. Without having matched sticks, you may be playing with the CAS and voltages to get them to sync properly.

Have a good one,
Alexander

it's pretty good, just that you could have got even faster parts for it: ie a 52x burner
