You read the sticky. I give you props. These stickies don't get much traffic anymore.

It doesn't really matter too much...the more expensive boards usually only have a few more features for a lot more. Most boards of the same chipset have very similar performance. You have to figure out if you need SLI, better NB/SB cooling, RAID, Firewire, and other features.
