Nvidia boards clock just as high as everything else. But nvidia boards also run hotter than hades and tend to burn up a lot easier than an intel chipset based board. That being said, get either a p35 board or an x38 if you plan on crossfire in the future. The 780i is just a 680i with pci-e2.0 slots and whatever extra wiring was needed to run the 45nm quads.

The ds4 or dq6? If you have a cooler with a backplate, you cant use it on the dq6. Fair warning.

DS4, but thanks for the warning. I have a zalman 9500, so yes, a backplate.

if you want a black x38 board here you go Newegg.com - ASUS P5E WS PRO T (LGA 775) Intel X38 ATX Server Motherboard - Retail
Newegg.com - ASUS P5E LGA 775 Intel X38 ATX Intel Motherboard - Retail
Newegg.com - ASUS MAXIMUS FORMULA LGA 775 Intel X38 ATX Intel Motherboard - Retail
all are black pcb the regular p5e looks most promising.

yeah, I really like the look of the evga 780i, nice and dark. I will consider all of these. Who knows which is better, DS4, or P5e? I think those are my last two choices. I dont care THAT much that it is dark, so if one is better, I will obviously get the one that is better. Thanks for all the input.
