Hi I think that the your second processor might not run on your MOBO since it's a 45 nano meter processor. I'm not a 100% sure yet but I'll look in to it. As for a hard drive if you have the money get a fast hard drive like a raptor.

The GIGABYTE GA-EP35-DS3L is the energy saving version of the GIGABYTE GA-P35-DS3L which supports the e8400 as well as other 45nm processors. So the GIGABYTE GA-EP35-DS3L supports the e8400 as well. If you plan on overclocking, I'd try and find the GIGABYTE GA-P35-DS3L as the new GIGABYTE GA-EP35-DS3L boards have some overclocking issues that Gigabyte has yet to recognize as "an official problem".

And I'd also go with the e8400 if you plan on OC'ing as it's very easy to overclock and you can get extremely good speeds out of it, while still remaining stable.

I added a new hard drive. Please look at my post again. Also, if you have anything to change, make sure it's from newegg. I want everything from the same site.








grrr, I don't think I will be able to buy this stuff this month since the mail-in rebate ends this Saturday. I guess I will have to wait for next month =[

That hard drive will work fine. The only reason I gave you a link to egoodz was because that's the cheapest I could find for that specific mother board and newegg is currently out of stock (as well as $20 more w/o shipping). If you don't plan on OCing, than you can choose the mobo you have picked out in your first post. And in case you didn't know, ordering everything from newegg won't give you a "discount" on your shipping price. That's one of the reasons I order from three different sites for my computer build (just order them today actually.)

For a keyboard, it's really up to you :)

You do know that you have to pay full price for the product to begin with, correct? It shouldn't make any difference when the mail in rebate ends (they're always there, btw. As soon as one ends, they start another one.)
