Wow, you guys have just saved me a lot of time and research.
I have the same video card and the same psu and was wondering which other components I should get to compliment them, and since it's all thumbs up from respected posters, I'll just copy the rest of the components from here!
Except I want the 965 instead of the 955 cpu.
Still, I know nothing about mobos and even less about optical drives. Bookmarked fo sho. Thanks everyone and thanks TC for magically picking the best components for ME! lol.
