My only question would be, when you're buying all top of the line components, why are you using DDR2 675 when your mobo and CPU are designed for 1066? Now, DDR2 1066 is ridiculously expensive right now, but you can get DDR2 800 for less than $20 more than what you're paying for the 675. 675 will run just fine, but if you're putting together a super rig like that one, then you might as well get the best RAM you can afford.
