Hey, this is the first time i'll be putting together a Newer computer. My other PC is about 5 years old but still runs well, but i've decided to start a build so here are the parts I plan on getting/ or have already...
...Also if you see a part that you think I could get a better performance gain for a bit more money please say

My case - I own a tt armor black but with no side fan because they didnt have that in stock when i purchased one... Could I make a hole and put a 25cm fan there? but a better fan that pushes more air...

Hey, I would suggest getting the e6300, you'll get the same OC at a better price.

Isn't the 965G the one with onboard video?

Also for a video card, I would suggest:
XFX PV-T71G-UCF7 GeForce 7900GT 256MB 256-bit GDDR3 VIVO PCI Express x16 Video Card

Can't bet the price, hurry though before it goes out of stock!
It has onboard video?..If I get a video card I can change that right?
that onboard video may screw your oc's though...
well does anyone know for sure? I need to know asap because if so Ill have to rma the damn thing
Yeah it's true that onboard video does hinder your OC, because even with onboard graphics disabled, i think it still gives the chipset more work.
so what should I do to return it and get the 965p?
bump, Can I RMA the 965g for the 965 P ?.. or do I have to get a refund then order the 965P

I think you need to contact the place you bought it from and tell them you got the wrong board and I'm sure you can send it back and get the right one without any problems!

Update: Received the 965P for X-mas and went out the other day and bought an 250gb HD...
