For the 775 build, switch to the Gigabyte GA-EP45-UD3P motherboard. it is pushing 600+ FSB with dual cores.

I thought the ASUS P6T Deluxe could only take 1333Mhz DDR3 ram ( 1600Mhz with OC )
and comparing a dual-core to a quad-core ...

yeah I'm sure. Robilar will be posting a thread on it soon. But right now he is running a 500 FSB OC with a quad core and the reports at XS are all very impressive. it is pushing a 600+ FSB with dual cores. So it is edging ahead of the ASUS P5Q series.
