You should consider the Asus P5WDH in your list of choices. Here's a screenshot of one in use from a guy on another forum I visit, I realise the cpu is a 6700, but it will give you some idea of the boards overclocking abilities.

You'll have to search for prices locally, I have little idea of American retailers or pricing.

As a point of interest, check out his SuperPi time 12.766s

no, none out at the moment. For E6400 and lower, i would go with a P5B Deluxe, E6600 or higher, 975x is the way to go.

I was thinking 1GB since this is actually gonna be a secondary rig/Server.

Got a pretty small budget for mb, cpu, gpu, ram, psu, case.
So 1GB should be plenty I think. Right now, it only has 512mb and it works pretty well.

I am probabley gonna go with the motherboard you suggest since it has the built in wifi and my home is wireless networked. Nice feature to have.

Anyone wonna suggest 1GB ram set and A case for under $130? Thanks
