    DDR2 is fine, no need for DDR3
    Graphics/sound card don't matter
    1333fsb certainly preferred
    needs to be a reasonable over clocker for an e8400

    I remember reading the Blood Iron is great is it still the best board for the money?

    it's sill one of the best, only real drawback for it is the lack of sli or x-fire support. If you want x-fire support, look at the DFI lanparty boards. For SLI support, I recommend the 750 sli boards for a inexpensive sli board(EVGA 750FTW board is around $180)

    Yeah, my BL died after a year of HEAVY service. Until she died last night, it was the best budget board I ever own. Motherboard Pro has them for $99.

    P5K's are pretty good, I'm selling one for $80 + shipping if you want it, never used.
