Thats what I was told, I have decided to switch to an Asus Intel Mobo because I was told they make better intel mobos, I think I will go with the dual core, later i will get a quad.

PSU- http://www.tigerdirect.ca/applications/SearchTools/item-details.asp?EdpNo=3092557&CatId=1483

MB- http://www.tigerdirect.ca/applications/SearchTools/item-details.asp?EdpNo=3573170&Sku=A455-2808

CPU- http://www.tigerdirect.ca/applications/SearchTools/item-details.asp?EdpNo=3897338

RAM- http://www.tigerdirect.ca/applications/SearchTools/item-details.asp?EdpNo=3404049&Sku=O261-8038

GPU- http://www.tigerdirect.ca/applications/SearchTools/item-details.asp?EdpNo=3971944&CatId=1558

Are those all good choices, any wrong choices, any tips on past occurances with these types of hardware, recommendations, warnings etc.

Thanks. I'm going to start buying the parts soon so yah, just want to make sure.

Looks ok to me :) For the GPU, every card I have had to date has a converter, so it should be there, yes.
as far as asus go, 2 weeks ago I would have said dont touch them with a bargepole. I upgraded to an asus mobo, and I have to say they have got their act together big time. Deffo getting back to form :)

Have you checked the qvl list at asus for your memory? I seldom see ocz ram on the approved list at asus.

Next do you really plan on using sli? If not, I would really go with a board using an intel rather than nvidia chipset. IMO nothing beats the stability of an intel cpu running on a quality board that uses an intel chipset.
