  1. Good combo! Built almost the exact same thing awhile back. The Egg has OCZ PC3500 Performance for $203.00/gb. It runs great with this board and will pop you up close to 2.2ghz at a 218mhz clock. Case is good and the power supply is adequate if you don't plan on loading the case up with drives and USB accessories. Good luck (PS - don't forget the XPpro Academic version at the Egg for $84.00!}
