I am in the process of building a i7 920 box with the following:

Antec 900

6GB Corsair Dominator PC3-12800 (3X 2GB)

Zalman CPN9900LED

Sapphire 4870 1GB GDDR5

Samsung SH-S223

1 300GB Velociraptor

1 WD Caviar Black 1TB

OCZ Stealthstream 700W

Vista Ultimate x64

MSI x58 Pro.....was thinking about going to a Gigabyte GA-EX58-UD5

Thoughts? Anyone think that the Zalman and Cosair with the Gigabyte will be an issue?

Your thoughts on the $190 MSI board??

for $190's it's worth it, you should have an edge over some frames over other motherboards.

Ive heard alot of good things about that MSI board. I decided to go with the Gigabyte EX58-UD3R board instead however.

Just found this response and thought I would add my thoughts after using the board for over a year. I love the board so far, have had no issues with it. The build I ended up with has given me a few fits but its been about a year and a half.

Overall the Gigabyte board is awesome.
