Okay, so I had a CPU/mobo combo all ready to go, and Newegg ended the combo deal on me. So now I am looking for a new combo... Here are three different combos I am debating over. All are 790gx north bridge, and SB750 south bridge...

Foxconn
MSI
ASUS

So what do you guys think? I'll probably be ordering this stuff on Thursday so I need to get everything sorted out.

The rest of the build:
Antec Three Hundred
4830 I know it is weak but I already have it from a previous build so I'm going to use it for a little bit then get a 4870 or something...

I personally recommend the ASUS brand motherboards blindly. Everything else looks a-ok. The 4830 is fine depending on what your playing and at what resolutions. I would grab an after market cooler like XIGMATEK HDT-S1283 120mm. Depending on how aggressive you want to be with your OC'ing you can look at a higher end cooler.
