All of the boards use the same chip. The only difference is the BIOS. The ICH10R is unaffected by the BIOSes used in any of the boards. If Intel states the NB or SB are capable of something, all of the AIBs will have it enabled.

My vote goes for the ASUS P5Q-E. It looks like the best board out of the list.

Mine just died. I'm staying away from ASUS now, OC'ed it to 3.6, then had both ethernet ports die, then internet went to hell, even with a seperate card (couldn't connect no matter what, and trust me, it was the board), then IE7 would crash the whole system upon opening.

If you don't stay away from ASUS, at least stay away from the P5Q-E.

If you're gonna get a P45, get the Biostar. Can OC like a beast (apparently), and can come in a combo deal w/ a Diamond 4850 ($30 off in the combo deal).

And that affects what exactly?

From a recent review you don't want to run CrossFire on a P45 board as it is bandwidth limited.

As a point in my OP that price is important and overclocking really isn't, looks like the P5Q-E or the GA-EP45-DS3R is the way to go.
