your mobo cannot support 8 dimms let alone 8gb of ram
you should go am2
do you need a monitor/keyboard/mouse?

if you have already ordered it are you asking for suggestions or tips on how to put it together?

sorry, I opp out of the SLI version of asus mobo which handles 8gig of ramm, asus recomended that ramm to me...

OK what ramm should I use would like to fill it up if possible, that way I guess its at its max?

I have a stockpile of keyboards "angermanagement proof"
and 4 logitecs MX518's in a box


I know how to build pc's but would like to learn on how to OC my mobo a littlebit...

The RAM listed is fine, but you would get a hell of a lot more out of your money if you waited for conroe.

But to each his/her own.

Also; i've never heard of your Asus "silent square" thingy, but according to reviews on newegg its good...but i'd still go for something from zalman

2GB RAM should be enough for now - you'd be very hard pushed to use that amount.

You could also consider WD Raptor hard disks - these are very fast but more expensive and have less capacity than 7200 rpm disks. Or the new Seagate Barracuda 7200.10 drives which use perpendicular recording and are faster than traditional 7200 disks.

Asus AM2 boards can handle 8GB of RAM (4x 2GB DIMMs). S939 boards max at 4GB.

I would go with AM2 or wait for Conroe but your obivously not doing that. As for the power supply get atleast 500w because of the crossfire setup i dont know exactly how much but atleast 500w and dont go cheap on them either. =]
