    Looks pretty awesome. Never heard of the brand on the mobo, I'd be tempted to go with an Asus or ABit instead, but generally it looks great.

    DFI makes great overclockers mobo :cool:
    nice cpu too they overclock well too :cool:

    but for the couple more $$ with 939 you'd be futureproof as 754 is discountinued this year. but hey if you don't upgrade every year, you have a VERY nice setup :)

    dual channel -- enough reason to go with 939.

    If it's possible i'd exchange your mobo/cpu. 939's have gone down and are not even 20$ more than 754, and you could probably exchange the mobo for no cost.

    BTW, it looks like there's a builtin NIC on that mobo, so you shouldn't need to buy one.
