I'm finally upgrading to dual core. I hope my upgrade goes smoothly. Is the combination of hardware a good choice? Will I experience hardware trouble with this combination?

Please give your opinions on this.

the 680i boards are having a munch of hardware problems, theres a beta version of the bio's out thats suppost to fix it, but i dont know how thats going. i would get a P5B deluxe or a P5W Deluxe instead. change the ram to this, better timings for less money. I dont know much about sound cards so i cant give you any advice there.

That ram is actually $30 more :? I can wait for rebates. And I thought timings had very little effect on conroe?

The only problems I heard about that board are raid and sli problems both of which I don't use. Are there any other problems i should be wary of?

If the storage solution is unreliable, I'd stay the hell away from it. Nothing sucks more than losing data.
