You're upgrading from a Q6600? That is probably the best upgrade you could possibly make at this time....I don't know why you were doubting yourself, lol.

I was more worried about RAM compatibility or there being something dreadfully wrong with that mobo.

Nah, it's all pretty bog standard stuff...good stuff from ASUS and Corsair. Not sure the gold colour scheme would be for me, but everything else should be okay.

That will be a massive improvement for you. You will be fine with those items.

What was the deal priced at?

So should I even attempt to do the swap over without a fresh Win7 Install? I've done it in the past, but I never managed to get 4 chipsets out of date before. The main reason I don't wanna go fresh is a have a crappy 1.5Mbps internet connection and it would take forever to get the windoze updates plus all the D3 patches.

Sorry to bust in with my question here:
Does this mobo have on-board video, if yes, what can it do? I want to replace my old single core AMD pc which I am using to watch dvd and stream video from internet. If I use this package deal, what kind of games can I play, e.g., Crysis 3?
