I would stay away from the P5N-E. There are mixed reviews while some may get good overclocks with it others don't even get decent. I haven't heard much of that Abit boar deither. Benchmarks of it seem good though. If you could scrap up enough money the EVGA 750i FTW is a good board from what I heard. It will be tough find a decent SLi board that price well new anyway.

theres a possiblity that i could squeak enough cash to buy the 750i ftw but it would take a little bit more time. on newegg its 189 and no one has reviewed it... anyone here with experience with it?

I recommend the P5N-E. I got it for $90 a few weeks back after a big rebate. I overclocked my 2.66Ghz e6750 to 3.72 with 58C load temps (stable for 24 hours tested) and 1.37vcore. Look at my cpu specs in my sig now for my current overclock. Trust me, this is a GREAT board for the price. I pity anyone who buys the DS3L for $20 cheaper.
