I am still not 100% about the Motherboard choice, I was planning to go with the P6T Deluxe first, but with V2 Coming out I am not sure if thats a good idea (As I dunno if there is a bug fix in V2 or if its just SAS removal), so decided to go with Rampage. The system will be mainly used for Gaming and for running multiple VMs.

Please let me know what you think of the above spec :)
