^ talking about the Gigabyte DS3/DS4 models (GA-965P-DS*) I assume..

The DS4 wont be out in the USA untill september according to Gary Kay, an editor for AnandTech.

It is out in Asia currently, maybe September in the states, trying to convince Gigabyte to bring it in earlier. The price was targeted for the $150~$175 range post ramp up, the DS3 was in the $125~$150 range post ramp up. Of course the pricing is a little different now.
(bottom of the page)

Slayer needs it before then.

Slayer- I recommend the DS3, check some reviews and see what you think. Anandtech(.com) did a comparison of most conroe boards that are out now, as well as tomshardware(.com). Teh DS3 is great as well as the DQ6, bute ht DQ6 is also almost $USD300.

I am also getting a MB for my conroe. I will be overclocking as much as I can (going with water!). Should I go with the GigaByte GA-965P-DQ6 or P5W DH Deluxe? Thanks, I just wanted some help before I take the plunge and pick one!
