    Looks nice man. I knew that "Buffalo" done networking, but I wasn't aware that they made memory as well. I've actually been reading alot of reviews on networking products lately and was kinda leaning towards them.

    Nice choices I believe. You should be most happy with that setup. Now alot of people are gonna say go with "Corsair", "Kingston", Giel" bla bla bla for the memory, but Crucial is a very stable brand. If you're looking for pure performance ( your setup dictates you are ) ? Then I would go with the Corsair XMS memory. That way you can take advantage of the Dual Channel technology that the MB supports.

    Just my opinion. :D
