as winamp sais: it will prolly kick the llamas ass. :thumbsup:
Performance should be topnotch.
Price/performance ratio would prolly suck balls, but hey if you can afford it why not? hehe

I cant believe people spend around $1000 on an FX-55 :p

But that is a really nice system, hope it all works out for you.

Dude you are 1337 for buying an FX-55 :) Though I have heard many a bad stories on the Asus A8N, for example our buddy JakUp Here's just crapped out on him, did you not learn from his lesson?? :D Congrats on the new build, it should own.

BTW, why did you go with the Patriot memory out of curiosity?

I went with patiot memory for the price/ performance. They have good timings, and 450.00 for a dual channel 2GB kit, I couldn't pass that up. The timings are 2-3-2-5, i thought that was good.
