I've researched extensively and every review on the internet of the Sapphire 5850 Xtreme is very positive.

Either way I'm set on my videocard, my concerns were on CPU/Motherboard, which is what I originally asked about

Sorry, I didn't know the 5850 is so cheap. 1 month ago the situation was a little bit different.

The 79XTD EVO is a fantastic board if you don't need SATAIII or USB3.0 (which nobody really needs as virtually nothing can utilize the bandwidth at this point), and the 5850 xtreme is easily the best price/performance card on the market at this point.

That motherboard will not hold back the 955 at all, trust me. I have a rather crappy chip and RAM, but the board still allowed me to boot to 4.3. Just be aware that the board does allow a bit of vdroop, so really high OC's will be difficult to keep stable. However, you won't need to worry about that as you're not planning on a high OC.

I would question the need for 8GB of RAM, though. What do you plan on using the machine for?

C3 right and full load at 3200? Guess biostar is a real piece of ***** board to be setting the default voltage at 1.429 Guess ill go back and lower the voltages or just raise the multiplier.

Just raise multi till unstable.
I'm not sure the exact figure for 955 stock vCore but I know for sure the 965's is 1.375

i'd rather bump the voltage down cause its already pushing 57 deg during LinX stress test. Whats the max temp for the 955 C3?

And how do my other voltages look because everthing is on default besides CPU vcore. Sorry this is my first build and OC

Northbridge: 1.2v
CPU NB: 1.14v
HT voltage: 1.2v
DDR3: 1.572v

Yeah make sure you keep the temp under 62c, under 55 is best.

Not sure about actual NB I think mine was at 1.1 but don't quote me on that
CPU-NB default is 1.1v. Have you overclocked the CPU-NB?
Not sure about HT
RAM volts should be set according to your particular RAM's specs
