Thanks for that link Good deal for that add in card.
I think that motherboard I linked is the best choice becuase I want a board with SLI support just for down the road. I looked at CF boards but I don't plan to use ATI cards so why spend all the money on something I don't plan to use?
Valset has a very good point as to Nvidia's chipset being, in essence, outdated tech. As long as we're talking about that, if I remember correctly the 980A chipset really draws alot more power compared to an AMD-based chipset. In the end, you would be better served by going the AMD chipset route with your Phenom II X6. You'd be getting a lot more for your money, in terms of updated tech and current support.
