Default Help finding the right mobo

There are so many motherboards out, even for the Q6600. I bought the quad core and need to update my motherboard but I'm having trouble. I am going to be running Vista Ultimate, Q6600, and I plan on getting a single 8800 so I don't think I'll need SLI. I've been looking at the ASUS Striker Extreme and the Maximus but they seem a little overpriced. Any suggestions?

I've got the Intel DP35DP motherboard. Supports quad and DDR3. A lot of bang for the buck.

Thanks guys! Now what about something with some overclocking ability? I like ASUS but I know there are tons of brands out.

Gigabyte P35C-DS3, great motherboard with both DDR2/3 compatibility. great overclocking board. i've personally used this board on more than 10 builds and it has never failed to perform up to par.

Mine P5k is great for me and I have the Q6600. There's another P5K out that supports DDR2/3. I'll try and find a link to it.
EDIT: I'm sorry, I can't seem to find it anywhere. The place I last saw it was on Ebuyer, but they don't seem to have it anymore, and neither do Newegg. www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16813131219
Or an open box one: www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16813131219R

the p5e is better then the P5k because it supports the 45nm cpu's, DDR2 and PCI 2.0, so its a pretty futureproof board
