Great selection of parts,you did your homework.
I do also have e6550 and really impressed by its performance with the asus p5kc you can overclocked it @3ghz stable.
Im also an amd guy but shifted to intel base pc and no regrets it did change my techie life

Splendid
Not that DDR3 future-proofing crap. Swap it out for P5K-E which IS the Deluxe if you take the white label off the board. So you're getting a deluxe board for cheap!

The rest are ok. Do you overclock?

Hi

10x for your suggestions. I have never overclocked any CPU I was going to try with the 3700 Amd and maybe get some phew months of usage so that I see what the Technology offers, but I don't know maybe I Just will go and upgrade.
