Thanks guys, I appreciate it! I'm going to stick with 1156 for now, but you both have good points.

I did see that Microcenter here in Chicago has two ASUS P7P55D (regular, not pro or deluxe) open box for $119! That would definitely save some money and allow for the better PSU..

I'm hesitant about an "open box" motherboard though.. Read anything about people's luck with Microcenter open box deals? I'm concerned someone may have tried to OC on that same board before me and blew a cap or something that may not be easily visible.. then just returned it.

Edit - I see they have a P7P55D-Pro for $127 (open box again). going to research this open box thing at Microcenter..
