Hey spboyd1, have your bought the CPU yet? I ask because Intel is releasing new CPU's in the next month (begining of January). They will be different MB's too, actually if you buy a current i5 and a 1156 MB they will not make future cpu's to fit that MB!
The new intel stuff is going to use a new socket, 1155 and pricing will be very good. Also note if you want to OC the new intel stuff coming out you need to get a cpu with a 'k' at the end of the model number. Personally I'm going for a 2500k.
