I am down to making the last few purchases for my new system. I will be running Vista 64 Home Premium and am hoping that following mobo-ram combinations are a good match but am weary of researching and ready to buy as it seems like any combo of the four would work. I would like to moderately OC. I have no experience with computer building. Thanks in advance for your help.
Intel Core 2 Duo E8400 Wolfdale 3.0GHz LGA 775 65W Dual-Core Processor Model BX80570E8400 $239

I have already bought the following parts of the system:

Microsoft Windows Vista 64-Bit Home Premium for System Builders Single Pack DVD - OEM
Logitech 967740-0403 Black USB Standard Internet 350 USB Keyboard - OEM

Well might be a biy over-kill but also a solid "investment". Read the reviews on both boards they both are solid great boards but for a "few" dollars more if you ever did need any of the features you will have them.
