because it doesn't support mismatched ram in dual channel. Having mismatched ram is alot worse if you overclocking and running stock should be fine

Even $1500 seems a bit high. Why not reuse the mouse, keyboard, monitor and HDD, and purchase the rest?

EVGA 65i Ultra Motherboard $100
e6420 C2D CPU $185
Transcend JETRAM 2 x 1GB dual channel kit $75
MSI 7900GS OC 512MB $160
Generic case w/ power supply $80

TOTAL: $600

I put the above together with my existing hard drives, keyboard, mouse and monitors, and it ran at 3.4 GHz out of the box!

Well 1500 would get you a close to high end.. around the time he will have the cash a quad core, a GTX, and instead of a enw mouse + keyboard a joystick or something...

it sucks, king. The thing is, I want to switch out as much as i can out of my existing comp. as soon as i get the mobo, I cant buy each part individually, and its hard to have cash lyin around, When i get something, I'm going to have to put it right to use. Thanks everyone though, 600 isnt bad, seeing as how I can still upgrade from that when I want to.
I'l prob. get a 650i, or something, switch the gpu, and go from there

Switching part by part is only ideal when you have a good basic setup..

Swapping out a MB to upgrade GPU later as GPU tech advances. Current MB's aren't PCI-E 2.0 which most GPU's will be soon.

Same with the latest MB doesn't always support the latest CPU if you buy a CPU later..

Save up, have a good basic setup and then grow and grow.
