Your choices look good. Quality products. I say put the extra cash into savings. Never know when you may need it

And the rest of your rig looks fine.

I still think my offer is something you shouldn't pass up. A Striker II 780i + 4GB Reapers for £180 is a bargain mate.

I will say this once and only once!

You are missing out on Mhill's offer.

That is one of the best DDR2 SLI boards you will buy along with 4GB of the OCZ Reaper EB editon RAM!

All for £180!!!!!

Dude are you nuts! I paid that for 4GB of crucial ballistix 6 months back....

That board costs nearly £190 including shipping and you can get it for less with RAM.

I know but i'm worried with Asus boards now after E7200 didn't function with two cores because of BIO issues. and all the battery stuff i need to do so i could overclock again its crazy i'm only new to all this overclocking business . I just want to stick a cool game in my system and run it smoothly or better than a Xbox 360.

You'll have no issues with that chip, the Striker II is designed for 45nm processors. Besides, you have an LCD readout telling you whatever the fault could be and the ability to CLR CMOS at the touch of a button.
