I Sorry, I was of the opinion that you were going to be doing SLI later. It's true that the P35 and X38 chipsets are better if you're not going to be doing SLI. They can reach higher FSB speeds than the Nvidia chipsets which improves overclockability. I like the board Freestyler recommended but I prefer this one: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16813130098

The P35 and X38 boards support Crossfire so you could do dual Radeons. Two 3870X2s, that would be awesome.
