As I stated earlier in this thread, you are going to be limited by your mobo, so getting a 1333 cpu is NOT going to be very beneficial to you if you are lookin for the highest stable clock speed.
Okay, so if I wanted to have extreme performance, and a 4.0GHz+ overclock, then should I get a P35 mobo? It sounds to me that I'll be lucky to see 4.0GHz with this mobo.

Skip P35 and go straight to X38 or X48,
Btw X48's let u do SLI and CF so they are best...
More money but ALOT better

So, is that basically a confirmation that if I stay with this mobo that it's possible I'll never see 4.0GHz even with these high end processors like e6750, 6850, e8400, e3110?

No,
Im saying that if ur going for P35 dont, go for an X38 or X48
I have no clue about the 680i ive heard they were decent htough.....

You might be able to pull it off, but it will require much more VCore than with a P35 or X38 board.

The DS3L is $80 on Newegg...

If your board can handle 450 FSB, you can probably hit 4.050 GHz with a E8400 and your existing setup. (9*450) Expecting to hit 4 GHz with a 65nm quad is a pipe dream. NOT going to happen.

The limiting factor in your setup will be your motherboard. As stated earlier, the nVidia boards aren't known to be real friendly at higher FSB speeds. With your current video card, you'd probably be ok with either a P35 or X38 board as long as you limited yourself to a single video card. If you plan to to SLI later, I'd stick with nVidia and eat a little in possible CPU performance.

Or get X48 and u can SLI or Crossfire

Also, heres my true opinion on all PC parts.
The one thing that runs everything else is your motherboard, it also decides what you can and cant run, its the most important part and biggest decision when buying a computer, Hence it should be the best part in your system.
Id go for the X48 even if it costs you $100 more than u planned, atleast you will have something that much better, and wont have to upgrade for that much longer

SLi is skulltrail exclusive, and is not supported with the X48 AFAIK. My advice is to go P35 for now, Nehalem is out in 9 months, so the X48 and the P35 will both be obsolete at the same time.
