Morning Eric.
Just had a look at your mobo specs and you already have two 6Gb sata ports on it,click here
Scroll down to Marvell 9128 chip, this is where you connect your SSD. You do not need a separate controller.

Thanks Glen for that just going to buy my last thing before I go to Malaysia which is the Samsung SH-B123l Blue-ray Reader DVD\CD writer and just before I order them headphones that you recommended what is the surround sound like on FPS Games. The reason I am getting some of the bits now is I found out with all the years I had been flying with Emirates i had amassed about 65,000 skywards points so I have been upgraded to First Class To KL so I am well Chuffed :-) The only down side is i have to start collecting sky points all over again :-( never mind I fly with them at least once a year so hopefully will make them up again. So I saved myself a bit of Money ( well quite a bit relley ) Hope you Are keeping well eric

Excellent headphones,great sound, very light so comfortable to wear for long periods. I also like the way that the microphone can be pushed up inside the headphones when not needed.

An excellent buy.

Still a few weeks before you jet off though,you could have the PC built by then.

This is the set click here no problems about phoning when you get back or even before.

I have just had a look at your specs and notice that you have not mentioned a case for your new build and I am assuming you will be installing Windows 7.

Yes i will be installing windows7 64 bit 7 the case i will be getting is the SilverStone FT02B V1.4 which i think is great
