Awesome! Keep us updated on how your OC goes (you will be overclocking, yes?)

AC97 isn't a hardware codec, it's just a path in which the sound travels (input and output). HD Audio is the Realtek ALC888 codec, which includes much more flexibility, sound quality, etc.

Go with the HD Audio, especially if you're going to use dolby, dts, etc.

You can always get the ram first since it doesn't cost you. If you don't like 8GB ram, u can always take it back out.

Indeed. And you can always sell the extra 4 GBs if you find you don't need/want it.

So... I'm hesitating to OC my chip because I still have no idea what is what in the BIOS, other than th FSB which I increased from 266 to 333.

What would it require to get 1:1 with my CPU and RAM?

In order to get a 1:1 ratio, thee shall set the Memory Multiplier to 2.0.

In Advance BIOS Features, disable CPU EIST Function and CPU Enhanced Halt (C1E). These are simply power saving measures and may not affect anything, but they've been reported to sometimes interfere with overclocking. Enable them after you reach your desired OC and see if they affect it, if you like.

In M.I.T.:

CPU Host Clock Control: enable to be able to set your multiplier and FSB (you already know this, since you've changed your FSB).

PCI Express Frequency: Manually set this to 100 MHz.

Performance Enhance: Set to Standard. I've read the other settings may cause instability.

System Memory Multiplier: Set to 2.0 (as noted) to sync your RAM and FSB.

System Voltage Control: set this to Manual. This allows you to control the various voltages. Don't worry about the red warning that starts flashing when you do this. It simply indicates you're no longer on auto.

DDR2 Overvoltage Control: this is your memory's voltage. Default is 1.8 volts. Set it to whatever your memory's recommended operating voltage is supposed to be.

PCI-E Overvoltage control: don't mess with this unless you're going for a high overclock and just can't seem to get stability.

FSB Overvoltage control: same as above.

MCH Overcoltage control (Northbridge voltage): same as above.

CPU Voltage Control: this is your vcore. Increase this a bit at a time when you find your OC is no longer stable. Test for stability after each increase. Watch your temps.

Normal CPU Core: the normal operating vcore of your chip.

That's all I can think of for now. Hope it helps.

on the board where one connects the "front panel headers" like pwr cable, reset cable, tiny tower speaker, etc, there appear to be two different places for the power LED, one within the grouping of all the wires (on what i'd call the top left, see page 25 section 10 of the manual) and the other place just to the left of this (see page 26, section 11), which seems to call for the exact same cable. which is the correct one? or does it matter? thx.
