How about you get a vanilla P6T? It's almost as good as the deluxe, do you need the extra features of the deluxe?

Last but not least, don't get a sound card (unless of course you have to have one). Best way to save money there.
How exactly could I not have a sound card?
And I have a combo deal with the deluxe.

$3 isn't much of a rip off But the Dark Knight needs a backplate I believe while the Mugen 2 comes with one already.

The motherboard should come with onboard sound, but a sound card is definetly a good thing to get!

Bah double posted :/

Wrong. Dark Knight comes with a backplate mounting kit for both LGA775 and i7.
