I'll take the advice on the 6950. But I really do not know when Bulldozer is coming out, later in the year but I still want the card for the time being. Also The board you linked supports 6.0gb-s while the HDD is 3.0, If I am correct. But I really like the board, a lot for the looks as well.

Disk drives isn't coming close to using the bandwidth SATA2 offers, so even-though the Samsung is SATA2 and the board supports SATA3, it would still be a tad faster than the WD, at worst the same.

Is this gaming? If so, a 955 with a nice OC would beat the 6-cores handily. BD would be out this year and the extra 2 cores really won;t help much other than deflate your wallet.
