Quad core is only worth it if you do a lot of video/audio encoding and editing. If it's for gaming then you would be better off with a dual core. Something like the E8200.

look up the Gigabyte P35-DS3L or DS3R much better than the MSI board you chose.

I agree, the Gigabyte boards are very good for overclocking. I would also like to add the ASUS P5K to that list.
