I'm trying to find some more information regarding the RAM before i make any decisions. It sounds like a lot of people had issues using the OCZ Reaper series memory on this motherboard, but the Blade series is supposed to be different.

It's ordered!

AMD Phenom II X3 720 Black Edition - $165.13
Gigabyte MA790X-UD4P - $123.28
G.SKILL F2-8500CL5D-4GBPI PC2-8500 4GB 2X2GB DDR2-1066 CL5-5-5-15 - $78.60
Corsair TX850W 850W CMPSU-850TX PSU - $150.20
2x Western Digital Caviar Black 640GB - $159.96
Sunbeam Core Contact Freezer 4 Heatpipe Heatsink - $36.81
Gigabyte GN-WP01GS(1.0) Wireless 802.11B/G PCI Adapter (For a different computer) - $19.52

Final bill $853.39

I decided on G.Skill ram after getting nothing but 100% support for it over OCZ.

I also switched to the Corsair PSU because of the praise it got and that it was only a few dollars more for 100w extra, quieter, has 4x 6+2 PCIe plugs (instead of 2), etc.

Should be fun to overclock this rig.
