check it out. and this should be about the same as a p5q pro as far as overclock ability...definitely not as good of cooling....but i got 500 FSB with an e8400 on it (the p5q pro). gurusan can get 600 on his deluxe with a 45nm xeon. i haven't monkeyed with mine yet to see what it will do with this quad.
I might go with the P5Q SE (the one you last linked), but just out of curiosity, is there something wrong with the P5k Pro or it can perform just as good?

Also I might sound silly about this but I need to ask.., if the motherboard said it support Crossfire Tech. it doesn't matter if I use Nvidia cards right?

the difference is the chipset. p5k uses p35 and p5q uses p45. supposedly the p45 is a better overclocker.
yes i use nvidia cards. no problem, just no SLI.
