but ill have a look at the prices for the p8p67 ws Revolution since i live in tasmania under australia

just checked and it sells for $350 down where i am
and the fatal1ty is $300 so im looking at around the $300 mark

OMG just checked that the p8p67 Deluxe is $240

and this Ram looks nice http://www.pccasegear.com/index.php?...82x4GB%29+DDR3

and is it worth the extra $100 to go from a i5 2500K to a i7 2600K?
For gaming, you're better off going i5 and spending the difference on something else like the gpu. for ram, I like the ripjaws. The reason to go i5 is because games don't use hyperthreading or the extra 2 mb of cache the i7 has anyway. Also since the i5 doesn't have hyperthreading it doesn't get as hot as the i7.

If I may, I recommend my board. It's got awesome features and looks great. There are some great reviews for it.

Sure, if you have the cash why not? Also a great board.

well, fuloran1 has the gen3, which is a revised board (not in just the pci-e slots). It's cheap and ver good. Among asus offerings the best boards are the p67 deluxe and the ws revo (the m4e is of course out of budget).

You may want to give a look at asrock z68 gen3 boards, that are also very good.
