I think you should get the HD 4850: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...D+4850&x=0&y=0
Review: http://techreport.com/articles.x/14967

That way, you can be without a terrible Nvidia motheboard, and you can get a nice P45: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16813138123

Will you be overclocking? If so, replace the E8400 with the E3110: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...7165&Tpk=E3110

nope i don't plan on overclocking at the time. But i had read that the dual cores are very good Overclockers...so i guess later down the road, i'll see what my e8400 can do.

As for video card, i've always been a fan of nvidia, and plan on sticking with it. I had already bought all this and now its only a matter of time to put it together. And the motherboard i have bought is a good one...so i'm happy.

Just wondering here, why would you recommend a E3110 over a E8400?

never mind. I mistook the 65W for 65NM lol. I see it now. Sorry.

I personnally think you made the wrong decision, but it's your money, not mine.
