Also, will you be using crossfire?

If you aren't using crossfire get the P35.

If you are using a quad, get the x48 dk since it has an 8 phase digital PWM.
the p35 LT version and x38 LT have the 8 phase digital PWM as well, according

yes the p35 lt and x38 lt have an 8phase digital PWM.

However, the p35 dark, and x38 dark do not, which are the boards that he linked in the original post.

hmmmm, I wonder if the 8 phase PWM makes a huge overclocking difference

So I know that the X-38 and the X-48 both support 45nm but are they worth the extra 55 and 85$ respectively. If so why?

Thanks for the info
newegg is selling open box LP LT P35 for $90 + 9 ship. I bit.
