I need a motherboard for this build. I’m trying to build a quiet moderate solid overclocker. Other then the PSU, Sound Card and Drive I welcome suggestions.
Antec Performance I P180 ~ $140.00
2 Nexus 120 mm fans $16 a pop do I need any with p180?
500 w Smartpower 2.0 ($40 at fry’s last week uses 1 quiet fan most of the time)
ARCTIC COOLING FREEZER4 $32 (cheap, one of the coolest, and quiet)

Western Digital Raptor WD740GD 74GB 10,000 RPM Serial ATA150 Hard $186.00 (already have) (They say relatively quiet I’m not so sure so far)
250 gb WD SATA (I got 3 Seagates w/ death pulses and 3 WDs without)
OCZ Enhanced Latency 1GB (2 x 512MB) 184-Pin DDR SDRAM DDR 400 (PC 3200) Unbuffered Dual Channel Kit System Memory Copper Heatspreader 2-3-2-6 $127.00 (I wanted the 2-2-2-5 platinums but can’t justify it for this system)
AMD Athlon 64 3200+ Venice Integrated into Chip FSB Socket 939 Processor $194.00 (3500 is $70 bucks more if it dropped 30 bucks I’d do it)
eVGA 256-P2-N376-AX Geforce 6800GT 256MB GDDR3 PCI Express x16 $359.00 -$14.00 Instant (any other thoughts would be appreciated)
What’s missing ? A Motherboard!!! I have 2 MSIs and they are ‘very much sucking’ as Sergei Fedorov would say…. so no MSI. I melted a non-oc’d Soyo so I won’t do them again either.
NVIDIA nForce4 ultra (do I need ultra with this system?)
I got Audigy 2zs so I don’t need audio but looks like it's std fair.
Thanks for your input.
