Because they overclock better. The 680i board (my current board) can hit close to 530 FSB. The evga boards top out at about 470. Also, the evga boards have had a history of issues, some of which were resolved by the 15+ bios revisions in 6 months. Others required evga to actually re-release a new revision of the board itself. So overclocking aside, the Asus boards have been much more reliable (do a google search for evga boards killing ram for example. I never had ram die in the evga boards but had enough other issues to switch to the asus).

That RAM is pretty good, but the price is not worth it in my opinion. A lot of good RAM modules can have their timings tightened down from 5-5-5-15 or 4-4-4-12 down to 4-3-3-5 without having to pay a premium price for it. Having the 1GHz stock speed is good though.

I would personally go for a PSU with dual or quad rails, to balance the load. This is especially important when dealing with a video card such as the 8800GTX.

Save money from the PSU and from a case and invest in something else, like a better video card, a better sound card, or even a better monitor. Prioritize and consolidate.

I WOULD NOT go with more than one 12v rail. They are limited in amps per rail and extra amps are not allocated to other rails. I have not seen multirail designs that pump more than 20a per rail on average and the most I've seen is 36. Consider that an 8800gtx needs 28amps and... Also, multirail designs are built with less costly parts (they don't need wiring to facilitate a huge 60 or 70 amp rail). Good luck!

The p5k boards offer better overclocking, support DDR3 and have better compatibility with future proccessors, like i said before. they dont support sli but do support dual graphics cards.

korruptive: The ram you are looking at will not work with the p5k3 you just purchased. You will need ddr3. Only the p5k and p5k deluxe support ddr2. Good luck!
