To start off, I'm not a noob to OCing, so I want a nice computer that I can put together and OC 45-50% as soon as I get it.

Im seeking people with nice overclocks, to help me build my rig...for the best price... (Note: I do want a SLI compatible motherboard)

Just list the:

Motherboard :
CPU :
RAM :
Fans (I have a fan controller) :
Heatsink/CPU Fan :
Graphics Card :
Power Supply:
Dvd Rom/Burner/Cd Burner (3 of these) :
Case : (With decent airflow, for best cooling)
Sell and wait for conroe.

I have the Epox that you are looking at...you won't be dissappointed.

http://www.pcstats.com/artvnl.cfm?articleID=1840

It has every option in the BIOS you can imagine. I have had Asus and MSI boards in the past....I figured I would take a chance and try something different, I am extremely satisfied.

If the LanParty, arguably the best overclocking motherboard to date, is out of your price range, this is the next best thing. The Infinity line has almost all the same options as its more expensive big brother. Costing in the neighborhood of about $125 or less, it really can’t be beat. Because it is considered to be their budget board, would be a nice setup to throw in two 6800GS. I am assuming anyone wanting to use 7800s would elect to go the LanParty route.

The SLI Infinity has a lot of ram tweaks that a lot of the overclockers would love. But this area of the BIOS is best left to the hardcore know-how enthusiast. Giving the multiplier and voltage options, the sky is the limit with this board.

DFI has once again shown why they are at the top of the overclocking and enthusiast motherboard market. Giving the consumers what they want in a product will keep you a notch above the rest.
You are better off getting this DFI board http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16813136164

The Mem voltage goes to 3.1 and the CPU voltage can go really high to like 1.9 I think

I actually bought this board first and had lots of problems; I returned it and got the Epox. It was much better. OF COURSE, I may have just had a bad board, nevertheless, it left a bad taste in my mouth. I do believe that DFI makes the best OC'ing boards, but IMO only their high-end products.

Your overclocks will be far better with a DFI or ASUS board.
