Yes, AMD CPUs have 3 year limited warranty. I would recommend the OP to RMA the CPU and motherboard. ASUS have quality boards so you may have just gotten unlucky. The CPU and motherboard is a good ~$300 right there which can be spent towards a GPU.

Can't RMA from Newegg but again I'll give it a shot, I just do not expect that I will follow through since Warranties are more complicated than building your own rig (IMO).

Even still, I'm completely without a computer of my own

RMA directly to the respective manufacturers:
Asus
AMD
Gskill

Once you get your 1333 kits back, sell them and keep the 4gigs of 1600.
Put everything together out of your case to confirm functionality and reinstall windows. Run mem test (1 stick at a time if you have to).

Then, with the $$ you saved, get yourself at least a 5770 and have some fun w/ SC2
It's so little!

If all you need is a CPU/mobo that choice looks fair enough to me if you don't want to go with an ASUS again
Though it might change your mind to know that top-end ASUS boards (CHIV, M4A89TD, M4A89GTD) are BIOS-update compatible with the upcoming "Bulldozer" processor...

Can't return the CPU since it's been bought from Newegg. And on ASUS' website I just go in circles. FAQ doesn't help and when you do pick your mobo number, it just tells you the that the warranty is void if you do certain things.

Did multiple searches and that was pointless. And Google didn't help.

I don't have a preference long as it WORKS and does what I need it to.

The Gigabyte GA-880GPA-UD3H will make you happy, I love this board

HOWEVER I concur with the others, I am upgrading my mobo and CPU in 1-2 months (once the bulldozer drops) to a Asus Crosshair IV Extreme + AMD Bulldozer combo (that is IF they are compatible, so far no confirmations)

As for GPU the 5770 would be perfect for you at the moment, if you want to go to town get a 6970 or 6990 if you can afford that.

I'm glad the Gigabyte mobo worked for you. I've now got enough funds together to build something decent.

While I agree with everyone else there is something everyone has except me. A computer of their own.

It's almost been a full 30 days and I'm so bored all the time. The 5770 would be sufficient for it's performance and cost-effectiveness.

Now I need to make certain that all the parts are compatible so I don't spend money in the wrong places again.

I don't think it was a comparability issue, just a case of bad luck.
