If you're not going to use a Phenom CPU, I don't think the SB750 boards will give you an overclocking advantage over the SB600 boards. Though if it was me, I'd get one anyway.
Aside from overclocking, SB750 supports more RAID modes, more SATA ports, and more USB ports than SB600. That may or may not be important to you.
I think the difference between 790X and 790FX is the number of PCI-E slots the boards use. 790FX boards support up to 4 PCI-E 16X slots (which my K9A2 Platinum has)
