I'd say 6/10
Probably a nice board for normal everyday use, but not suitable for serious overclocking. I read the manual (ugh.. pretty bad), and the BIOS screenshot shows that CPU/AGP/PCI frequency can only be changed together. This is not good for overclocking, since you want to increase the FSB for the CPU seperately, and leave the AGP/PCI bus locked at the default speeds.
A better board, if you don't want to upgrade CPU/RAM/Video Card, is the DFI LANPARTY 875P-T Socket T (LGA 775) Intel 875P ATX Intel Motherboard. Newegg has a refurb for $70. (new is $155, and not available right now). This board boast very detailed OC options.
Also the DFI board does not support PATA Raid, only SATA raid.

Exactly correct. AGP/PCI are not lockable.
