Hey guys this is my first build and I am ordering this today. Please tell me any problems I may have with this setup. This will be a "work" computer that needs to run huge programs. There will be small amount of gaming but not much. In the future it will run Vista Ultimate, however XP Pro will be used for now. Please tell me any comments.

Interesting with the Kingston, would I be better off going with the Corsair?

Good choice, (of course, becuase) that's what I'm running in my P5B Dlx and it rocks.

There's nothing wrong with Kingston or any other ram not listed as compatible. If the ram doesn't work out of the box, the average user wouldn't bother to use a small compatible stick of ram to set up bios. They expect it to work out of the box.
