Default 680i or 780i?

Is the price increase worth it to get a 780i mobo instead of a 680i? I'm either going with the Q6600 or Q6700 once I see how the prices drops this month.

If you really like overclocking, I would probably suggest the 780i, because they have more tweaks to get the overclock right. Not saying the 680i is bad for overclocking, just that the 780i does it a little better in my opinion.

Other than that, they should perform similarly.

Not sure about the FSB walls, but I've seen them hit the 480-500 range.
