I like the price of the one suggested earlier and I ain't gonna overclock to the max. The other one saves me like 60 bucks, I don't know....

Remember, it's not just about overclocking to the max, the quad GT has at least one feature that other board suggested doesn't.

On board on/off, reset and clear CMOS buttons.
I haven't even attached the on/off and reset switches of my case because of this.
And the nicest part is that the clear CMOS Button is on the back I/O panel so you don't need to open your case.

ok, well i could all just go DFI LANPARTY DK P35-T2RS for like 140 what you think about that, for that price difference I almost am considering it. Especially since pci 2.0 prob won't matter until my cpu and motherboard are worthless anyway.
