i7 920 D0 stepping
Gigabyte EX58-UD3R Revision 1.6
Samsung Spin Point F3 1TB or Seagate Barracuda 7200.12 500/750Gb
Sapphire Radeon HD 5850/5870
Prolimatech Megahalems

As you might have noticed it is similar to what you already had listed but with a few minor additions/modifications.
Yeah, and I don't plan on going multi-gpu either, so I could save $100 right there with the UD3R.

I'll check out those hd suggestions you made, thanks

You are correct that currently there is no such thing. But there have been threads here about this platform and many are anticipating it, including myself.
Other than that, a server motherboard might work as well. The drivers would probably be a pain however.

After adding up the cost of all the components, I'm pleased to say that I am well below my budget, and after I sell my old parts on ebay I expect to offset the cost by $1100, so the total cost of the upgrade is around $


$268 GIGABYTE GA-EX58-UD5
$288 i7 920 2.66Mhz
$135 G.SKILL 6GB (3 x 2GB) DDR3 SDRAM 1333 (PC3 10666)
$100 Prolimatech Mega Shadow Air Cooler + Scythe SFlex F FAN
$399 SAPPHIRE Radeon 5870
$759 (2) SAMSUNG 2443BWT Monitor
$75 WD Caviar Black 640GB
---------
$2024

~$1150 (Proceeds from old parts based on recent 'sold' prices on ebay)

Total Cost for Upgrade: $874


That's not bad at all considering that the out of pocket cost is $874
The difference is the timings. 9-9-9-24 (reds) vs 7-7-7-18 (blues).
Here is a side by side comparison.

Since you are so far under budget you should sell your current PSU and get a Corsair 750HX or 850HX.

Also some 1600Mhz RAM with low timings.

Ok, so far I've got the mobo, cpu, heat sink, fan, and memory installed. The fan on the side of the heat sink is a strange set up, I mean, the fan is held on with clips; it doesn't appear to be very reliable but I'm sure it will be ok.

Still wondering what to do about the 5870. Not sure if I want to order international.
