P5B Deluxe if you dont want SLI, 680i if you do. Wait for RD600 if you want crossfire, and yes, replace your ram if you are interested in serious overclocking. Those Buffalo Firestix 6400 are good I hear!

PS. If you dont overclock dont bother replacing the ram...

Gigabyte DS3,Asus P5B deluxe, Abit AW9D, DFI Infinity, to name a few of the best. I would hold off on the ram, unless you really have the money to boot. I would wait and see just how well those sticks oc, you may find that they run pretty well and want to save the money for something else, or may find that it sux and you want some killer gskills or something.
