I'll take into consideration whether or not to change the motherboard... in a previous post I heard one of the main reasons people took one mobo other than the other was for the fact that one is as close to other, but cheaper.
As far as G0 Steppings, I'm looking online and can't really figure out what it is.

If you're doing alot of design stuff you may want a q6600 G0. I'm not sure which programs take advantage of it though.
I will be gaming, and I understand that that when you hit 5ms, even sometimes 8 I hear the difference is not noticeable... which the ms isn't why I chose the monitor, it was the reputation I got about it from the picture quality, as you said... the contrast ratio... the specifciations state it's 1000:1... and DC 3000:1... which hopefully will be great...
My ideas on the CPU per se, were to just get a decent CPU that I can OC to a respectable speed to hold me down until the Intel's new quads came out... unless it's going to make THAT big of a difference right now?

You're right, I don't know very much about OC'ing... but I do pick up fast... as I mentioned above I'm not for sure how much I'd need to clock the system, the CPU is primarily just to hold me over until the new quads
Though my over all questions I guess now are...
1. Why Change the Mobo?
2. What will I need to clock my CPU to, to have the most pleasant experience possible... and when do I need to change my Heatsink from the arctic freezer cooler, to the tuniq tower?
What do you all think about dropping down to the e2180, overclocking that... while I wait for the Q9900's?
