the board,processor a good deal?
I have a 925 dual core. It's runs hot when overclocked and I have a Zalman 8000 on there in a micro build. C2D is a much better choice. It looks like the 680i will not support Penryn at this time. So, the board is a dead end for future upgrades. The 780i will be release soon if you want an upgradeable Nvidia SLI chipset. The price looks good for that combo though. It wouldn't be a bad build, just not for a future upgrade.
