Default Best AM2 Overclocking Motherboard

What is the best Overclocking mobo for AM2 right now?

I heard the DFI was the king of the market, why?
Is it because of the bios options? Last I heard it had the phoenix bios, which is actually common in newer mobos.

I also heard that the Crosshair has the most options, and is very good in overclocking..

I don't know.
I had the Tforce550, which was excellent, but I'm looking for a tiny bit more juice. I've decided to lap my CPU, and my heatsink. I might get better ram..
dunno, already got g skill.

Any thoughts on this?

The eVGA and Foxconn 590s are both excellent.

I was actually thinking about getting an am2+ motherboard (the tforce one.) but until I heard that It won't have the features of a regular am2+ mobo.
The only thing you can do that is extra, is having a new processor.

which can be nice, i suppose. But what if one of the missing features, somehow cripples the overall power of the processor?
Does anyone know when AM2+ or AM3 processors/ boards are coming out?

I think my solution for now is, that I get a cheap mobo, one that will last me. And After a few months (prob feb. of next year.) I'll switch to phenom, according to the overclockablitity and the reviews..

what do you guys think?
