Okay, here's what is leftover choice-wise:

MSI P55 GD80 (Love the looks and it is super feature rich)
Or
EVGA P55 FTW (Love the looks more, but is also more expensive)

The rest is decided upon: i7 860, Ripjaws 4Gb DDR3, TX750, 212+

Starts filling the shopping cart @ NCIX.com.....

Woops. What was the first bundle deal that NCIX had then? It was Core i5 as well?

Imo, go for the MSI if you don't mind the customer support. Haven't really heard great things from them, but no bad things either. It's not like you're going to stare at the mobo all day.....are you? You'd be too busy refreshing FahMon instead

Your thread title indicates that you will be in big trouble if you spend the cash. This is desirable so the Evga FTW!!!!

This is how flannel is worn around here:
edit: upon close inspection of the background of the picture, figured I would do the mods a favour...

You are right! That is a true Canadian portrait; flannel, extreme OC, and beaver! I may not have looked closely enough at the picture in the background..time to edit the post me thinks....
