Screw the Caviar Green go for Blacks, or at least Blue...

For about $300 consider moving to a 6 core AMD

for ~200 go for the MSI 890FX

theres combo deals for 6 core and 870/ 890 boards out there

radeon 5850 ~300

btw where are you getting your prices - they seem a lil out dated... (not to be rude)

Depends on the price, but in general that's a very nice board.
