Default GIGABYTE GA-P35-DS4 any good?

The GIGABYTE GA-P35-DS4 was suggested to me for my Q6600 and I was just wondering how you guys think this motherboard hold up against:

750I FTW
780I
680I
P35-DS3L
DFI Lanparty DK

In terms of Overclocking, compatability with the Q6600, and Cooling?

Its meant to be a good general motherboard. Some people complaining about them on NewEgg but i dont trust them. I prefer Asus boards but anyway...

Well I have my computer that I want pretty much ready to order I just cant seem to figure out what motherboard to get...its so hard to choose one...I just want one that will overclock my q6600 to 3.6 thats all I really care about...after hours and hours of searching I dont really think ill care about SLI...

I just need some good reasoning on a CHEAP(under $200 the less the better) Motherboard that can get what I need done and last awhile....

The ds4 is supposed to be a great board. little sister to the Dq6 which is also an excellent board.

If your not going to SLi/Crossfire then don't bother buying a motherboard with those features. The Gigabyte DS3L and DFI Bloodiron will offer the same performance as those others without the huge price.
