them MSI K8N Neo 4 boards are awsome, so is toe AMD prosesser. I used to be an Intel fan, but I'm liking AMD Prosessers nowadays. For some reason, they seem to handle more overclocking abuse than Intel. My case in point, Yours is better than mine. I'm jealous lol.

im not really an amd fan ecuase ive had troubles b4, but thats not what im gonna talk about, i dont really like canada computers, too many problems with em, id try someone like hltechnology.com, ncix.com, bytewizecomputers.com, genitechcomputers.com or canadasys.com these all are pretty fair pricing and have good shipping cost and ive had no prolems with em.

Looks like a nice setup you're going to have there...

The biggest suggestion I could make to you, and I can't stress it enough, is to go with the OEM version of the processor and buy yourself a better HSF. Other than that, looks like you have everything else well taken care of

i'am will look into the 3500+ but the motherbored only has one PCI-E, so no Sli,if it was Sli then i would get a Geforce..

i will look around at a few other locations...like the pacific mall one and yes i will get Oem

thanks for the help all.

We use those boards at work and I don;t like em... the BIOS is flaky sometimes with SATA drives and we've had 3 so far that randomly reset the bios for you.

edit

honestly I'd go with an Asus board if you can shell out the bucks.

I always say... there are only 3 computer parts you CANNOT skimp on... Motherboard, Power supply, and Memory.

If you're looking for a well priced PCI-E mobo check out the EPoX 9NPA+ Ultra when it comes out, it will be priced somewhere between $100-$150 and more than likely closer to $100 than $150.

Xbit Labs claims that this is going to be one of the highest, if not THE highest overclockable nForce 4 boards to hit the market, they also rated it among the best in stability and reliability which is a major plus if you are going to be overclocking. It's also got the usual goodies like 8 channel sound, firewire, SATA w/ nVRAID, etc.

i'm going to agree with hainer36 on the comp site. I ordered my ram and vid card from bytewizecomputers.com
now, they have some great prices on some things (like my ram for $274) but hd's and cpus are a little above average. but still they were easy to use and even gave free shipping.
