Default uhhhh!!! I need help picking a MB

ClubIT Product - ASUS P5N32-E SLI Plus LGA 775 NVIDIA nForce 650i SLI ATX Intel Motherboard Retail
Anyone have feedback on this one? I ended up cancelling my order for the Gigabyte p35. Its getting teamed up with an E6750. What do you guys think? I've spent all day reading reviews on both boards and I know the P35 is highly regarded but I just wanted to go with something different.

Newb to Newb opinion: EVGA 680i is about the same price, but i like it more, other people on this site should have more experience with the other boards.

The P5N32-E SLI is probably the best motherboard, with the 650i chipset. If you want SLI, then go for that. I'm not sure if it's future proof though, like some of the 680i and all of the P35 chipsets.

If you're already spending so much on a mobo go for 680i.

bit-tech.net | Foxconn MARS has the Quantum Force!
Don't know if this is a repost. Looks promising. I'm still on the fence. I have no idea which chipset I'm going with.

Good OCing, like you said earlier future proofing, multimedia(music creation inparticular). I just wanna try a new board other than the same one everyone has. Although I know from here that its great. Just something different I guess that performs just as good if not better.

Are you looking to have the SLI option as well?

nah, I will never need it thats why I'm kinda straying away from 6 series chipsets. It would be a waste of money for me in terms of not using it to its full potential.
