Arrow CF, do you approve of this build?

Here is the build I am looking at purchasing shortly:

Motherboard:
EVGA NVIDIA nForce 680i SLI ATX
http://www.newegg.com/product/produc...82E16813188019



Processor:
Intel Core 2 Duo E6750 2.66GHz
http://www.newegg.com/product/produc...82E16819115029

RAM:
CORSAIR XMS2 2GB (2 x 1GB) 240-Pin DDR2 800
http://www.newegg.com/product/produc...82E16820145590

I don't plan to upgrade the other components since I believe they are effecient for the build. Please give comments and suggestions!

I do NOT approve the build. Your motherboard has Quad core OC lacking. Even though you're buying a Dual core, you'll want to upgrade to Quad core soon. Get the A1 version:

Well the board I was looking at does support Quad-core. I don't know about OCing, but i'm not one to usually do that anyway

If you're not planning on Overclocking, then the board you've shown is fine. If it would have been something like 5 bucks difference though, I would of advised you for th A1, as it is the premium of these series.

Well I will take a look at the price differences with a C2Q and that board. Not sure if i'm willing to polly up the price tag though.
