Ultra can OC higher.. Also has less power consumption and runs cooler.

I think that I have found the Board OF Boards

I took a look at the ASUS Site and Saw that they had a board that I had not looked at before. The Blitz Formula. So I went ahead and read some reviews, and some of the experts are saying that the aboard is an overclocking beast, ever better than the P5K's.

If anyone has any info on the board let me know.
And thanks everyone for your time and help!!

It is a bit of a beast from what I hear. If you can afford it, its not a purchase that I can really fault. Don't forget that I will overclock best if you use the built in water cooling block.

So great motherboard, with many great features (no SLI bear in mind), watch out, you might have problems with fitting an aftermarket HSF. Just remember that you can get a GA-P35-DS3R for 1/3 of the price.

i would recommend these parts:

cpu: q6600 g0
cooler: tt120 extreme
ram: gskill hz's or ballistix's
psu: corsair 620w
hdd: seagate 320gb 7200.1rpm 16mb cache
mobo: ds3r (sli =waste of money)
vga: evga 8800ultra (not an oc one)

sli is a waste of money, if u have two ultras when the 9 series comes out just the one card will kill the sli'ed ultra's. and dont waste money on oc'ed vga's coz u can do it urself.

3D MARK 06 ***14,063*** on vista, use to get it
p4 2.8ghz
Asus p4SD-LA
6800gs ultra
1.5gb ddr400 oem
120gb hdd
