You do NOT WANT THAT MOTHERBOARD. It only supports DDR2! Get a gigabyte

GIgabyte also comes with soem nice unilities - overclock ur CPU 5/10/15% easily with their tuner utility

Rest is fine... those 460's are great bang for buck right now.

Thanks for the warning!

Does that motherboard support SLI? on tigerdirect it days it supports only crossfire.

EDIT: I should add that SLI is not required. It's just there just in case I need to upgrade. Is it important? I don't see upgrading for 2-3 years.
