Ray,Looks like the rest of your planned purchase got cut off (or didn't paste properly.)One comment is that unless you're an uberclocker, you probably don't need the "OC Palm Edition". All it adds to the P6T Deluxe is an external LCD display that shows various temps and freq's, and allows you to manipulate the freq's outside of the BIOS.Once the rest of your plan is there, I'm sure others will have some comments.Regards,...jim
