I see you share my bias to intel and invidia and since you're looking to save some money, I would recommend a 780i motherboard. Here is a good place to start. They range from $180 to about $260, but pretty much can be found at $219 for any of the good ones when they're on sale. This board will allow you to use your old processor and memory as well as give you PCI-Express 2.0 from what you have now.

Want to save even more money? Check out the 750i boards. You do lose some features and some overclocking potential with these boards, but they still perform fairly well if you can do with less SATA ports, less USB ports, a single gigabit ethernet rather than dual, as well as some memory frequency caps. I guess that's not too terribly bad of a trade off when you can save as much as $100 in comparison.

Something I have not had much experience with are the X38 and X48 chips. From what I understand, they overclock very well, but they only support crashfire. Now that doesn't mean you won't be able to use your nvida card on these boards, but if plan on SLI, these previous generation intel chips are out of the picture.

If you relax your SLI requirement, the Gigabyte GA-EP45-UD3P or UD3R gets a lot of praise these days..
But as I say, based of P45 so its crossfireX, not SLI..

Played around a bit today, and I am now running my Q6600 at:
FSB 1600
Multiplier 8
vcore 1.360v (actual load)

Running abit hot, so not 24x7, but nice..
(Just 30minutes P95 so far)
need to play around a little more with the voltages, as both Southbridge,Northbridge and Cores are running a little hot.
From Everest:
CPU: 67C
Core0: 70C
SPP (Southbridge): 72C
MCP (Northbridge): 69C

I guess 1600 FSB is a little much to ask
Memory timings are loose, at 5-5-5-18 2T @2.1v , so will try to tighten..

CPU-z validation @3200

Installed the cpu on Friday night. So far so good. Temps are excellent. at 3.5ghz the cpu idles at about 38/40 degrees and at 3.8ghz it goes up to 42/45 degrees. It differs a lot depending which temp programs you use. Core temp and hw monitor are on the high side while speedfan is about 2 degrees lower than them and real temp is very low with idle temps with it being in the low 30's.

Under load during a long session of benching 3dmark 06,05 and vantage it would go at max to 54/60. But generally stayed at about 48.

Going to run prime95 later today to test for stability but so far it seems quite stable.

3dmark 06 results: 14513(3000 up from my e6400). 3dmark 06 result
3dmark 05 result: 22104( deleted the 05 run for e6400 so can't compare) 3dmark 05 result
3dmark vantage result: 10324( up with a 1000 from e6400) 3dmark vantage result

Will do some game benching latter today and post their results as well.

Earlier comments on temps were totally off. Reason was I was still using the old version of all my monitoring programs. Actually temps according to the new versions are 37/38 for speedfan,coretemp and hw monitor and 33 degrees for real temp.

I love how cool this wolfdale runs compared to my old e6400.

Check the first page of this thread. Robilar pretty much explains all the different settings in the bios to use.

To check for stability use prime 95.

Can't help on the quads since I have never used one.
