My System Specs

Default

If they have a Q9450 I'd personally take a cpu with a larger cache if you're trying to future proof a little.

The ram is a perfect set you can't go wrong with the Ascents.

The Gigabyte you are looking is pretty nice read the review here: Gigabyte GA-EP45-UD3P P45 Motherboard Review personally I'd be likely to choose it over the P5Q, but thats me.

The choice between the Vendetta2 and sunbeam core contact is negligible, personally if the Vendetta2 is all they have I wouldn't be upset choosing it. My only concern is the difficulty you might have mounting it, its a little difficult so I have heard.
