I suggest the new Asus P5WD2-E Extreme
http://labs.anandtech.com/alllinks.php?pfilter=4209

It has the new 975X chipset, 2 PCIe, RAID0, SATA 3.0, but it has DDR2. Therefore your old memory wont work, but this is the case with all new 775 boards. This is the best possible board. I am getting one of these. It supports the coming Conroe.

Other to consider.

He is not necessarly looking for SLI, but rather a good OCer. The P5WD2-E is SLI ready (waiting on the NVidia BIOS), and it is the BEST OCer for 775.

hey dani,
The best bang for your buck is this Asus motherboard. That will give you a good OC for the price.

SLI is Nvidia's Scalable Link interface, where it will support 2 PCI express video cards. Read more about that here

PCIe 1x is used mainly for Gigabit ethernet cards and some super expensive RAID cards.
wow that PSU is a good deal, I would buy it..It is much better than that PSU that came with your case, those things are very poor and are really made for the trash

Ram:
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16820231018
or cheaper Value Ram
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16820144151

You dont want to go cheap on Motherboard/PSU/RAM as all of these significantly affect your OC.
