(bought my kit before the P55 i5 chipset release/lower 1.65v versions)
I'm running an OCZ FLEX EX (DDR3-2000) kit @ 2.10v. The BIOS will allow you to set the voltage much higher than that.

DAMN YOU INTEL! you dropped your price for the i5-750 and EVGA dropped the price for the p55 FTW 200

EDIT: after reasearch it comes out to the same price as my amd buuld.

I think that the AMD kit you picked is better than that Intel kit. Even if you went 965 BE. lol

I think they must've made the HDMI freebie specifically 965 and up. Cause I got that combo with the 955 and it came with the HDMI cable. It hasn't even been a month yet.My purchase date was 10 June 2010 the order arrived that following Tuesday.

All I can say then is pick one. You're the guy that's got to live with it and it would suck if you built something and in the end did not like it.

Personally I like the CHIV, but with the i5 board where are you going with it once it's all said and done? By this I mean what chip will top out on that Board?

We pretty much know there is room for growth on the AM3 board as not only can you go up to 1050T, but 1090T and then Bulldozer. All 3 of these CPUs' best that i5. The only thing that keeps i5's dog in the fight is Hyper Threading Tech. That's it. But once you hit the ceiling on that socket your tech aspirations will cost you more money in the long run then getting this board and camping on it to meet your budgetary concerns.

That's how I see it anyway. Anyone else?

for the current sockets the am3 would be better since bulldozer will be am3 also and you cant upgrade the 1156 anymore

Thats true HT is the only thing keeping it going. Plus you are right about bulldozer being AM3, BUT how much will it cost is the question.

Id go AMD Like its been said. AM3 has a future with bulldozer. Knowing AMD there will be many variants which should put prices at reasonable consumer level.
