I am building an i5 750 system Main uses; internet, word processing, photo editing (photoshop CS4), occasional game. Will get a dell U2410. Not interested in dual graphic cards. I would like usb 3.0 SATA 6 for future use (although right now it would be pretty much useless). I am interested in Asus or Gigabyte motherboard and G.skill memory. Which MOB?
Asus P7P55D P7P55D Pro P7P55D-E P7P55D-E Pro or other??
I don't want to sepnd more than I need to for feature I won't use. Is a ATI radeon HD4670 good enough?
Thanks for any suggestions.

Built in Wireless would be nice too but I imagine I'd have to go to the more expensive MOB for that?
Here is what I have in mind:
intel i5 750 CPU Asus or Gigabyte MOB - Can't decide which. G.Skill 4GB ripjaw DDR3 1333 Sapphire Radeon HD4670 OCZ fatal1ty? 525W PSU (on sale) Antec three hundred case Samsung spinpoint F3 500GB OR WD caviar Blue 640GB
I would also look at the HD 5770 or HD 5850 depending on your monitor resolution.
As well as take the Spinpoint it is a better drive.
Why did you select only those?
I would pick this one.

I selected Asus because I had no problems with my last Asus board. Do you have this Gigabyte Board? Also the radeon 5770 is more money than I wanted to spend. My monitor resolution will be 1900x 1200. Isnt the HD4670 good enough??
As far as the 4670 goes most likely not. However I am not sure what games you play. Also at 1900X1200 the 5770 will struggle at max settings.
Sorry forgot to answer the Mobo question. Yes I have a Gigabyte board as well as a few of my friends. I love mine and have not heard them complain about anything either.
I am not interested in playing games but watching movies and photo editing.
Which Gigabyte MOB do you have?
I am using a AMD 955 black so it obviously wont work for your set up but. Here ya go.
