It's really coming along now, all I need to pickup now is the CPU and I'm set.
Here's what I've ordered:

Asus P5B Deluxe
2GB Corsair XMS2 DDR2-800
Zalman CNPS-9500 LED

Now all I need is the E6400!

Expect pics and benchies in this thread when I get everything assembled.
It will all be going into my current case, I have pics linked in my sig.

Nice rig, I think you'll be able to manage a decent OC :thumbsup:

ty very much! its gonna suck having my ram, mobo and heatsink sitting around but no CPU lol. I should have my system put together before christmas! I think that 400 FSB with ram at 800 should be possible (3.2 ghz).

Sweet rig dude! Are you looking for 120mm case fans? I got two 120mm Yate loon fans for under $10 at jab-tech.com
I had a great experience with them and will be buying my case mod supplies from them in the future. What heatsink do you think you're going to get? I got the Zalman not because its the best cooler out there (there are much better) but because it looked sweet and matches the copper heatpipes on the mobo i'm getting. Also, it is no slouch in the performance department... Oh and I wouldn't recommend getting a LiteON dvd-rw, even though they're a little bit cheaper, mine makes an annoying clicking sound whenever i power up my computer.

well with my case i need:
4+80MM Fans
4+120MM Fans
I have the same MOBO as you so i was thinking Zalman also..

I think i might get a LG DVD-RW cause they are good Drives.
I get all my Components from Newegg.com

I had an LG phone when I had Cingular. I beat the crap out of that phone, had it for about 2.5 years, then I finally dropped it in a puddle and it died. Suppose you can't blame it though lol.
