I'm trying to decide on which DFI board I should get. You can either pick one of the ones I have listed or if you think a different one is better then post that too. Also if you could, provide why you think I should get said board.

T2RS because it's the best bang for your buck out of all of those. Also because I have one

You might wanna consider the X38 DK, also a good deal.

For overclocking a Q6600, get the Abit IP35 Pro. It has amazing overclocking features (external CMOS reset / uGuru overclocking utility). I can vouch for the board because it has been holding 100% stable @ 1800mhz FSB (450x8) for about a month now.

Unlike the DFI boards (except the X38), the Abit has a very efficient NB cooler which allows you to push your FSB frequency. You can pretty much expect to get 3.6Ghz out of a Q6600 with some patients and well chosen components. Whether run 450x8 or the slower 400x9 to achieve 3.6Ghz has a lot to do with the your motherboard decision.

IP35 Pro for $135 (MIR) or DFI X38 for $199+.
