  1. How about these two, will it be a good combo?

    MSI P6N SLI Platinum

    and

    Intel Core 2 Duo E6400 Conroe 2.13GHz

    If not, what other mobo/cpu combo would you recommend? (for graphic design and gaming), might be doing some OC..., I read some forums and looks like it is a good mobo for OCing...Let me know your thoughts, ideas, suggestions...

    P.S. As of right now, this is what I got so far...

    Case

    Cooler

    + 5 HDDs that are EIDEs...and AGP video card, that's gonna get upgraded to PCI-e

    MSI makes EXCELLENT motherboards. That combination is a great one. I would consider going with an E6600 CPU though.

    Please help....

    When trying to put in E6400 into its socket, in the manual it said to lower the load plate and then lightly to push load level to secure the CPU, but i had to press a bit hard to secure it under hook...did I just mess up my CPU/MOBO?!?!
