Remember Im getting RAM heatsinks for extra cooling on the RAM. The RAM Im getting was reviewed to be overclocked with a Core 2 Duo E6600 up to 3.3. Im not going that high. Anyways, the mobo comes with a chipset fan. What's it for.

I wonder if it come with any extra ocing features like the MSI one. Ill check. Anyways thanks again James. I was wondering something what's the difference between the one Im getting and this one EVGA mobo. Their the same thing. I registered on the EVGA website in a sweepstakes to win the one I just posted. It seems like the same thing except it comes with SATA cables. And that it was originally 199. I dont know could you clarify the difference.

Yes pictures are worth a million words, but unlesss I see the product specifications I don't know. To be honest there was a revision on this chipset but I can't quite put my finger on what it was, it might be an updated BIOS for the upcoming processor Penryn, otherwise I can't think what the differences might be. Which if thats the case then the extra 40$ would give you a much better upgradeable route. But then again the processors that come out at the end of the year won't work on this motherboard or anything thats out and it's this processor that'll be your next upgrade most likely. Penryn comes out in the summer to try and make this post clearer.

I think Im going to wait and get Penryn and hopefully that mobo will support it. It supports an FSB of 1333, also its only 150. like the other it was originally 199.

That's up to you to decided. I'm kinda thinking about it myself, because there are going to be more price cuts on July 22, a quad core may be selling for as little as 233$, not a typo.
The newer processors will also overclock much better and newer motherboards to support it will probably support PCI 2.0 and it will support DDR3.

one last question. will the monitor im getting be able to display in 1080p. If not could you recommend a better one that isn't too expensive/ too big that I can buy two of because I really want to dual monitor. Also I was wondering if everything that Im getting has drivers for 64-bit. Im getting Vista Ultimate and I was wondering if everything has the drivers. The only one that Im not sure about is the monitor, DVD Burner, motherboard, and this card reader i-Rocks Card Reader,

That is impossible, what you want is 1900x1200, the prices are rediculas, they start at 450 each I believe. 1680x1050 is 30 pixels short vertically for 1080i/p. Don't get ultimate, or 64bit. Premium will be enough(you won't notice the difference between the two) and it's to early for 64bit. If you don't buy OEM you can get 32bit and 64bit in the same package, you just need to order 64bit after you receive the 32bit disc.

Okay, so Im getting the Gigabyte P35C-DS3R, and I was going to get G.Skill RAM because it's good for overclocking, but Corsair doesnt say it supports and I was wondering if I would have a problem. Also it says that it supports RAM with 1.8v, but do you think that RAM with 2-2.1v would work too. Just because I really dont want to change the products Im getting.

Pretty good board, I'm getting the board one up from that. Ordered it 3 days ago, I really like what I'm seeing with these boards from Gigabyte.

My ram is rated at 2.1V, most motherboards have voltages that will go up to around 2.4V for overclocking, in other words yes.
