Building my second computer so I have a couple of questions.

Here is my potential build for a serious gaming computer:

Intel 920 I7 2.6
EVGA-E758-A1 3 way sli
corsair CMPSU-750HX
2- HD 5850 SLI
samsung spin point F3 HD
windows 7 home premium 64 bit
mushkin redline 6 gb 1600 triple channel
antec 1200 case

My question is what is the best motherboard to match up to the processor, and dual 5850's?

Which heat sink cooler would work well? Do I need the brackets for the board selected?

Thanks in advance

If your not overclocking, the stock cooler will be fine. If your overclocking, here's some options:

You are correct I was initially going with evga 275 sli, and I changed my mind after researching the 5850's crossfire. Sorry

I like your choice, coolermaster TY.

Which DVD drive would you recommend?

Do you believe the EVGA motherboard is better than the Gig or Asus?
