Since you are on a budget, maybe try ebay or smaller shops for a 3000+ if you want to cut some corners. Also you could always try the asrock Uli sata2 board OR the Biostar 6100 mATX board if you want a solid overclocker. I've owned both and they both are pretty hardcore, the biostar was insane on the fsb i reached with no effort but it had a bad ethernet port TWICE!

They may have solved that issue who knows. Do some research ...read around forums before you buy anything. Getting things 2nd hand isnt so bad, so check out ebay or our for sale threads.

Buying things second hand means that "You pay your money and you take your chances".

I wouldn't do that. I wouldn't pay for a possible good education for my daughter or son either. I don't cheap out on things that matter to me unless I can be sure that it will still bring me what I want.

I would be careful about e-baying because yes, you might get a good one. You also might get one that overclocks very poorly. It's a luck of the draw thing and often RMA is not a viable option.

It all depends on the overclocking you wish to perform. If you are looking for a high overclock then you really do need a higher performing board.

I find that the more value based boards usually have some problems such as SATA unlocked, sound stuttering on o/c (with PCI/AGP/PCI-e lock in place) etc so I usually advise people to pay a bit extra on the motherboard and a bit less on the processor.

I have never found an appreciation for Gigabyte although others have different views of their boards. You might wish to post in the motherboard section regarding your processor and ask what board will give you the overclock you wish.
