    Hey great love to see folk's building systems. Get the most for your money.
    Look up your new system mother board on New EGG with a combo package
    Like thisNewegg.com - Computer Parts, PC Components, Laptop Computers, Digital Cameras and more!

    You can save a bundle
    Heres a bunch with all kinds of combos Newegg.com - Computer Parts, PC Components, Laptop Computers, Digital Cameras and more!

    That looks like a nice board. I like AMD My self because all my computers are and I can swap parts all day long and make different combos every week.
    Some thing to consider if you like playing with computers

    In fact look up any of your parts to be ordered and check the combos.
    I ordered a operating system and got a new CPU for my other computer for 6.00 more than I would have payed buying the OS by it self.

    I love Western Digital you can't go wrong with them. I have all kinds of tricks in my tool box for WD HD's I swap parts all the time.
    Let us know how you make out.

    Another thing to consider is MSN Live Search cash back I have a nest egg there that pays out after 60 days and its extra money that I got back and was spending anyway.

    I even do a search for promo codes when I am at the shopping cart check out stage for any on line purchase.

    For example I got 8 GB of Patriot Viper memory for 62.00 but I am relentless when I am shopping.

    Good luck
