There is no guarantee the BSEL mod will work either. It really depends on if his board is able to accept the 1333 QDR. If it doesn't only thing he will have left is clockgen or setfsb and thats not a definitive either.

I would just get a new motherboard and psu.

Looks good to me . I would change the CPU cooler to an OCZ Vendetta 2 or Xigmatek Rifle. The only other thing is that the GA-EP35_DS3L would probably be more than enough for you, but its your choice.
Also don't forget thermal paste (arctic silver 5)
If you can, try to get a larger capacity hard-drive, they fill up surprisingly quickly.

Looks very nice to me. I'm sure you'll enjoy the experience of putting together and overclocking a PC yourself, IMO its much more exciting than opening a large box with 'dell' on the side

Can you cancel the Zalman 9500 from your order or is it too late? The Quad core generates a lot of heat and the Zalman 9500 isnt up to the task. I would recommend the Tuniq Tower 120 if you want to stay under $50, or, if you want the best, get the Thermalright Ultra Extreme 120 (T.R.U.E.) with an Ultra Kaze 120mm fan.

If you plan on overclocking much, I honestly wouldn't recommend the Zalman 9500 over coolers like the OCZ Vendetta II, Tuniq Tower, or Thermalright Ultra-120 Extreme. They are a much better choice for Core 2 Quads IMO. It's not that the Zalman is bad, but Quads put out so much heat, that a higher-end cooler like the ones I mentioned are probably a better idea for overclocking.

Keep in mind, as ericeod has said, the Gigabyte motherboards are more user friendly for overclocking than the DFI.

And are you sure you didn't want two hard drives for a RAID array? Hard Drives are typically the slowest component in your system, having 2 in RAID will reduce the gap.

I'm really not sure if I can change. But is it that significant to upgrade the cooler?
