Why not a 650i mobo? I was thinking the MSI, the one that $113 can't remember the name, or the evga 650i ultra for $100. The review on anandtech hit 3.6 with and e6320 and a 650i ultra.

The MSI P6N is a great mobo and well made. The EVGA 650i Ultra can overclock well but it was pretty cheaply made and has some heat issues. I would pay the extra few bucks for the MSI.
