They are great overclockers though. Are they like a beefed up DS3?

For overclocking, this board will be better, compared to that EVGA 650i:
Newegg.com - GIGABYTE GA-965P-DS3 (rev. 1.3) LGA 775 Intel P965 Express ATX Intel Motherboard - Retail
very picky timings for DDR2 that board, i had that picked before
i'm not even gonna overclock that much probably only to 3.0, and the EVGA was $20 cheaper, is it really that bad of a board?

I have a feeling that because of the higher bus and clock speeds the E6X50 will beat the Q6x00 series in most any real world application for awhile.
