    Where do you live? And where did you check for your build parts?

    I found an exact same ASUS motherboard on newegg.com for $170 bucks with good customer ratings. It's even got free shipping.

    Depending on where you live, you could use this. If you're from the UK, then probably not. Get back to me on this? I'd like to perhaps save you some cash :)
