Instead of getting a 965 you could get a 955 save some cash and get 4gb of 1600 ram. Just my opinion

right now is the worst time to bye AMD, i would wait another month for bulldozer to be released. as you will get a much better rig, even if you went for the lowest model of bulldozer it will kick buty, over the old phenom ll.

but if you cant wait then yes good choice's. great board, had one my self very good, got fsb over 300 stable. the only thing i would recomend is too get some 1600mhz ram, and as im a fan boy get an AMD gpu for fusion platform.

good luck on the build.

You should definitely get a 2500k, getting AMD right now is like shooting yourself in the foot.
