I've checked all of these for compatibility myself however this is my first build so I might of missed something. I was just wondering if someone could look this over and double check that these parts will all work together.
Any specific reason, why you are choosing the mobo? The mobo is AM2 and the processor you are getting is AM3. Why dont you buy an AM3 mobo? That will give you a fredom to install DDR3 RAM and is better for future upgrades.
Its not that they wont work together, but why buy a Ferrari and have an 80 year old chauffer drive it!!
well the performance difference between DDR2 and DDR3 isn't that of Ford vs Ferrari, but I do agree that an AM3 board with DDR3 support is the better investment. DDR3 RAM prices are starting to drop lower than DDR2, while DDR2 will only continue to rise. If you need to upgrade to 8GB of RAM someday, it will be cheaper to do with DDR3.
I get it. If your objective is SLI/Crossfire, I would suggest you to go for crossfire instead, as the nforce mobos are plagued with problems like overheating and in many cases, people have reported their data becoming corrupt in a few days. http://www.nforcershq.com/nvidia-nforce-680i-chipset-pr...
If you only want SLI, then everybody here would suggest you to go for intel and x58, which WILL go out of your budget.
