Nvida chipsets suck for OC'ing. If you want a cheap OC'ing board and you don't need SLI support then this is the board for you: http://www.ebuyer.com/product/131173
I've heard that apart from 3-way SLI support, the 780i won't be a much better performer either.

my Asus P5N-E has loads of overcloking options plus you can change the frequency of the memory and FSB indepentantly, so adjusting the FSB wont affect the memory clock

The P35 can reach a much higher FSB speed than the 650i.

Then why is it there are many reports of people take them up to 3.8+?

I've heard great things about the P35 chipset though. That said, I wouldn't' get an Asus board with one. They've let me down a lot recently.

Hands down in my opinion any of the DFI higher end boards. Check them out at newegg. And if you buy from newegg don't forget to click the newegg banner at the top of the website first so Dave gets a kickback.

The DFI LANParty UT nF3-250Gb has been called an overclockers dream. If you can afford it and your serious about your OC's, then this is the board for you.

It's free becuase David is cool like that.

Liverpool is in England, correct? if so, Newegg won't ship to you.
