Also why dont you grab a 955 instead of a 965. Its cheaper and essentially the same chip with a higher multi on it.

I was thinking the same thing, but I'm not too knowledgable about the quads.

It's your call OP, but in general right now there's almost no reason to still get an AMD chip. If you can sacrifice a couple of things, still go with a SB chip - they're much more powerful in every way, and more future proof as Ivy bridge chips will reportedly fit on a 1155 socket.

If you truly can't squeeze the extra $100 and get it from Newegg, consider getting a 2100. It's at the same price point ($125 from newegg) as 965BE and has very similar benchmarks.
Thank you very much for showing me this (intel always wins ). I think I may swap to that cpu if someone shows me an affordable motherboard it can cost a tad bit more than the current mobo if needed since the intel cpu is slightly cheaper.
it works

But if you want to CF.... http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16813131703

get a refurbished asus vw246h, they're like 50$ less and they work just as well. I have two that have been running for 1 year+

and you might as well get sata3, it's the same price

I say go for it same specs as the ASUS I suggested, I just love the UEIF Bios, I hear it is amazing I am upgrading to one as soon as possible, but also a HAFx too.... so it will be a while.
