I'm looking at possibly buying this motherboard/memory combo as it seems to be a good deal for what I want to build. And that would be pretty much a straight up gaming rig. I already have some components, my main concerns are the motherboard, memory, and cpu.

Here is the psu i'm looking to buy: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

This is the case i already have: http://thermaltakeusa.com/product/Chassis/fulltower/arm...

I just picked up these from a CompUSA store that's going out of business: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

If anyone kind enough could point out it the above combo along is a good deal, and possibly recommend anything else. Thanks to anyone that can help me! :)

I personally don't think PC5300 RAM for $62 is a very good deal. There are plenty of PC6400 options for the same price.

I've heard good things about that mobo, but I'm not convinced it's worth $200 either.

I asked for help so others could post recommendations, if you don't think the PC5300 is worth it, what would be a good replacement? And what other type of P35 mobo would be a good choice?
