MSI MS6728-110

or...

ASUS P4P800-E DELUXE

I looked at the review and im seeing great results for overclocking on the msi but none for the asus...One guy using the msi board OC'ed his cpu from 3.0ghz to 4.2ghz!!!!!! WOW!!!! So im leaning twords the msi board
ASUS is known for their stability, not overclockability.

DFI and Abit are known for their overclockability (DFI is also known for their moddability too).

go with the ABIT IC7, that is the best board in ocing a S478 P4, people have gotten insane overclocks with that board and the ASUS P4PC-800 deluxe never heard about the MSI though. I wouldnt go with the MSI.

no, get a seagate 7200.9, it is on par with the Raptor and you get more storage space.
