Thread Starter 
Thank you for all the suggestions and comments.

Looks like I'm going to change the motherboard ... which I apologize for, should have shown:

Motherboard: GIGABYTE GA-965P-DQ6 Socket T (LGA 775) Intel P965 Express ATX Intel Motherboard - Retail

to the multiple suggestions of the ASUS P5B Deluxe Socket T (LGA 775) Intel P965 Express ATX Intel Motherboard - Retail

Also appreciate the other suggestions on case, HDD (I've got to consider RAID), etc.

Again, thank you ALL.

I'll let all know what I finally go with.

was your intention to do a sli configuration in the future too?

I still say P5B is everyone's pre-programmed response. Techno-zombies...

@AMD Hardsoftware. Off topic but you called attention to it... your signature is 9 lines including blank lines, and 11 lines with the words "Quote" counted as a line.

As always with this great board you've gotten spot-on advise - I've nothing to add. As an oldster myself, knocking on 52, I just wanted to welcome you, you are building a great rig, don't be a stranger.
