Thanks man! And this is an upgrade from a Core 2 Duo e8300 I was using, so I hope to see a difference in performance and speed.

You definitely want to get a dedicated sound card. Works wonders for recording, listening and composing music. Difference is night and day if you have audiophile ears.

looks great, you should be able to push the 920 to atleast 3.5 easily., one thing
you could go for a cheaper motherboard if you wanted with pretty much the same performance.
looks like agreat build though

Rohan I definitely intend on a quality sound card, I agree with you!

Pepz, ya know I never OC'ed before So im still a virgin with that.If anybodys got tips on that...

I went for the cheapest board avaiable from the maker. I think it was a good compromise for quality and price. The EVGA boards are really pricey!

Thank you guys for droppin a line, I feel so much more confident about it all
