680i board for sure, solid board, solid warranty, and its the same ref design anyways. sli memory too, the Nb and Sb are easy to remove also.

Since its a reference design...whichever is cheaper and has the best warranty. With motherboards I'm not sure BFG's warranty although I will say that I really wanted to get the BFG just because I like them a little bit more, but I couldn't find one in stock...anywhere.

They are both 680i, Evga's arn't great overclockers and I don't know much about BFG. I would say Asus but I think the striker might be the only 680i. I would look on newegg but it is blocked on the school computers. So I would say Evga I guess

Get this one, http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16813188019. It's great for overclocking c2d's.

Have you used an EVGA 680i?

If they're not "great overclockers" than they're really really good overclockers

The Asus P5N32-E 680i is the best overclocker of all the 680i chipset boards.

Don't know if thats an option you can pick though.

That specific one is said to be really good, the one that I posted up there. Not the best for Core 2 Quads, but for C2D's it's supposed to be the if not one of the best.
