Everything you have chosen fits well together and well above average quality. Am I correct this is a system for gaming?
There is nothing wrong with that MB. If you have read that there have been some DOA, well, that happens with every board from time to time.
Flashy case; if money is a concern you could chop $30-$40 off of that. Well chose PSU too. You're good to go.

Thanks for the Best Answer.
I'm not a big fan of the MSI boards either, but they give a good bang-for-buck; but it lacks room for 2 good video cards and has only 1 USB header, and has had some build problems.

Let me see what I can do for you here. Now, you have not told me if this is a gaming board or not, so I'll compromise:
This Asus Sabertooth is a wonderful board and is in stock right now.
This Asus P8P67 Deluxe would be my first choice for you if you can squeeze another $20. Problem is it's not in stock right now and it may be awhile before you can get one - high demand.
This Gigabyte is nice for gaming as it lets you run the PCIe x16 slots at 8x if you are running two cards, if not, then the board I have is this Gigabyte board and it is the best motherboard I've ever had for the money. The BIOS is real easy.

Well, there are some quality boards to choose from.

Here they are in the order I had them listed:

ASUS SABERTOOTH P67 (REV 3.0)
ASUS P8P67 DELUXE (REV 3.0)
GIGABYTE GA-P67A-UD4-B3
GIGABYTE GA-P67A-UD3P-B3

You are right; sometimes those links worked for me, sometimes not. Newegg even notes "if from Toms Hardware" in the error page, so they know something is wrong on this site.

And yes, all of the boards are fixed now.

I agree .... Th Sabertooth is a wonderful board . the P8P67 Pro was by far the most popular during the original release .... that's why it's not on newegg yet as all production the receive goes to replacing the original defective boards.
