I also have a few questions/concerns. I can't help but feel that the motherboard is cheap and I should be spending more. Should I go with it or step up to something better? It would be nice to have SLI and RAID. I would prefer a board that supports 45nm processors and i can upgrade on for a while. Concerning the ram I had picked out some 1066 g skill but I'm wondering if I would be better off just buying some 800 ram. I hear there is not much of a noticeable difference between 800 and 1066, so what's the ups and downs of each?
I don't trust MSI I would choose Evega over it (costs the same)
Good choice on the MOBO no need to spend more 775 will be out soon any way.
Stick with good 800 Ram should do the trick.
Other than that looks good.
