Can't see your list, but I'm liking the sound of it.

(I have had great customer support from both gskill and corsair, for what its worth.)

I've done many builds with ASUS and Gigabyte and I have had less problems with Gigabyte although ASUS tends to overclock better.

But that's for X58 boards. Not sure with P67

Is your H50 going to fit, or will you need an adapter?

Other than that your good to go. When you sell your current chip/mobo/ram/video card/monitor....then get a better gpu/monitor

Yes, the H50 is compatible with 1155.

I'm really enjoying my Gigabyte, but they are more expensive. It seems like people are having fewer problems with them compared to Asus this time around. They all have their little quirks, though - that's the way it is with a brand new socket and chipset.

I'm not so sure how well the stock h50 backplate will work on 1155 boards - lots of stuff for it to conflict with, not to mention it's really flimsy. Get one of these guys!

I would save your money and wait for the release of the new nVidia Kepler GPUs to be released in a few months. Splurge on a nicer mobo now and then save your money for a few months to buy a killer GPU - I think this is a great game plan .
