    Do a search on here for commando, youll see what a festering dung pile that one is

    P5B deluxe 965 chipset, solid performer great overclocker, plenty of features.

    P5K deluxe P35 chipset, excellent overclocker, solid performer, loads of features, possibly a few teething problems with raid, but they should be sorted with the next bios hopefully.

    Abit QuadGT is another option that or the p5b would be the best choice.

    This is only my opinion, but its reviews like that, that give online review sites a bad name. Pretty much all they have done is, list the features and compare them to a P5B, and then given it a 5 star rating, which is completely ridiculous.

    Out of the 5 or 6 people that bought one of them on hexus (that posted about them), I think think only one of them still has his original board, and i think he isnt impressed with it!

    Sounds good, I personally would go for the Corsair 620W HX Series Modular SLi Powersupply - http://tinyurl.com/yslqtp - it's £92.38 so may be too much, but it is a quality psu (not that I've heard anything bad about Coolermasters psu's).

    The main thing is that the selection you have posted is fine, and if you're happy with it, go for it.

    Yup

    Ideally i wanted the DS4 board. But I hear the P5B-Deluxe is also a very good board with pretty much all the features i want.

    E6600 chip speaks for itself.

    Hopefully the 650watt CM will be plenty enough to power 1 dvd, 2 sata 1 hdd, 1 7800gtx

    Its enough power, but rather than gamble on a coolermaster PSU, I would go for the corsair 620w as already mentioned, easy enough power.

    It's plenty. You'll only need about 380W with that set up.
