Hey guys, will be ordering this build in a week, just wondering if anything here is not compatible but I ran through it all and it seems to be good. Anyways heres the specs. Some things you might want to know are that I will be adding an 8800GT at x-mas so I'm not sure if that PSU can handle all that or not? And also, I don't think its something I got to worry about but are there new chip sets coming out thats are gonna blow P35 away, and also, the new Intel's and AMD's, are they gonna be crazy good and should I wait? But also my aim with this build was future proof so once I get a job its not like I cant just upgrade my CPU or RAM because the mobo can support all the new stuff like DDR3 ram. The thing I am mostly worried about is the chip set, anyways in advance thanks for the help. The build:

It looks fully compatible to me. That's going to be a pretty good rig when it's complete.

The only problem is, according to their website, Crucial memory isn't supported at 1066MHz, so I don't know how you feel about that, but I wouldn't take that chance. GIGABYTE - Product - Motherboard - Overview - GA-P35-DS3R (rev. 2.0)

Yeah, but you know how picky some mobos can be with 1066 RAM.

Look good and don't worry that PSu will handle the system
