Not ddr 1000, theres no such thing. It does support ddr2 1000, all current boards do but it is overclockers ram therefore they do not say in theyre manual that they accept it.

In the manual, the P5B Deluxe supports DDR2-1066 from Kingston.

I'd look into the Crucial Anniversary sticks<br><br><a href="http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.asp?Item=N82E16820148017" target="_blank">http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16820148017</a><br><br>
They supposedly use D9GMH, which is suppose to be really good

PCIe 2.0 is going to be released about the time of Kentsfield. If you aren't getting EVERYTHING now, I would really wait. First of all, R600 (although arriving much later than G80) will likely trump the G80 in performance. Also, by the time R600 comes out, boards with PCIe 2.0 will likely be out (increasing power supplied from the mobo, and easing the strain off of a single rail on the PSU). Hopefully, DDR2 will go down, but if not, at least a few new chips may come out by then (See: Team Group ram, they have REALLY nice stuff, and you have the $$ for it). Also, by then, Kentsfield will likely be cheaper than the 999 price point its at now. They may even have a refresh of kentsfield by then (2 months from now, when Vista and R600 are released).<br><br>
Id say, if you aren't getting everything to complete your system NOW, then just hold off until your ready to buy EVERYTHING. Just my $.02

Kentsfield is being released next month, PCIe 2.0 sometime early next year, nobody has any proof that R600 will beat out G80, DDR2 prices will drop some time after the new year, and team group gets the same stuff everyone else gets. Easing the strain from single rail PSU? single rail PSUs are the only kind you should be use in really high end systems, you probably mean mutli-rail PSUs <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/grouphug.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Grouphug">

Finally found a pic showing that the Crucial anniversary sticks use D9GMH chips and at $229 it's a *steal*, you're better off with these than the Corsair you posted

I plan on going SLI about 3-4 months after the build, So the motherboard must support SLI. I'm aware that the PSU I bought can't handle SLI G80, I think i'll get a 2nd PSU when I get SLI.<br />
<br />
Also edited the post, I ment DDR2-1000 =D<br />
<br />
So what SLI mobo would you guys recommend, and usable with kentsfield. (I dont really wanna use modded drivers BTW)

I'm so confused on what board to get...<br><br>
I want SLI support for later on, and I don't wanna have to rebuy a 250$ motherboard whenever I decide to go SLI with the G80s.<br><br>
I'm not going to overclock this rig btw, To expensive. I just want a board with the latest chipset and SLI x16.<br><br>
Was thinking this <a href="http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.asp?Item=N82E16813131071" target="_blank">http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16813131071</a> but its not double spaced so I doubt G80 sli would even work, theyd be to close and probably overheat.

You're buying a QX6700 but you're not going to overclock? <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/confused.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Confused"><br><br>
If you're serious about not overclocking than go with whatever board offers you SLI, the one you posted is fine
