Nope, last time I heard 790i caused sata data corruption when overclocked. On top of that, ddr3 isn't worth the price yet.

I would go for a MB with a LGA 775 socket, this way you can get more quality and performance than with those with socket AM2+ / AM2 (Phenom / Athlon)
So if you 're buying a MB make sure it's Intel's. Try get crossfire too thats what am doing along with an ASUS MB... dude you got the computer made out of worlds best maker of: Motherboards, Graphics Card and Processor (Intel, ATI and ASUS). That way you're sure to make the right choice ^^. Hope it helps....
