GIGABYTE GA-P35-DS3R LGA 775 Intel P35 ATX Intel Motherboard $129.99
Nice suggestion! A cheaper P35 board which supports DDR2 800 standard. I like this one a lot.

Nah, Its preety much like the GA-965P-S3 version of P35.
VERY solid, lots of options, although if you never owned a gigabyte before, it takes some getting used too. I still havent gotten used to it.

I did not push it too hard cause Im selling it in a rig, but it could handle my cpu up to 3.0 ghz without voltage increase or heat from the mobo.(428mhz)
Are you talking about the GIGABYTE GA-P35-S3L?

Ok so for mobo I'm either looking at the eVGa 680i A1 if I go for the more pricey option or the GA-P35-DS3R

I think the e6550 is a good choice for processor, it's way cheaper than e6600 but seems to be almost as good (1333 FSB, 4M cache). I'll have to get a good HSF to OC this thing.

Good, so far:

Mobo: eVGa 680i A1 or GA-P35-DS3R
Processor: e6550

Isn't that PSU a bit weak? I was thinking I needed something in the 600W range?

If you stick with a single video card (which most likely will be the case, since it's smarter to upgrade to a higher-end single card than to SLI your, by that time likely outdated, 8800GTS), the 520W corsair is more than enough. 40A on the 12V rail isn't bad at all, and plenty for any single GPU system currently on the market.

If you want more power, look at the Silverstone OP650. 650W, and 54A on a single 12V rail. However, not modular and a bit more expensive. Great PSU also though!
