Hello, I've had the extreme fortune of having a friend get me a i7-2600k for a dirt cheap price which I cannot refuse to upgrade from my current e2180 build. I plan to slowly upgrade over time but will currently be recycling the following components
-Nvidia Geforce 9800GT
-antec 500w PSU
-500gb seagate harddrive

I need assistance in choosing the motherboard, I was looking at
http://www.memoryexpress.com/Products/PID-MX32728(ME).aspx

and for Ram i was thinking 4gb of rip jaw

I am trying to keep costs down. What do you guys think?

id probably go with this one:
http://www.directcanada.com/products/?sku=12980BD2727&v...(B3)&manufacture=MSI
because it is also inexpensive, but gives you the option of crossfire/sli at a later date. if youre pretty certain thats not going to happen, its a perfectly good board.

i would recommend you check out directcanada's prices as well for anything you are buying

Thanks for the advice man, that site is quite a bit cheaper in addition to the free shipping!
