Well, you do want a 975X for that CPU to do a really good overclock. And you do want a REAL good air cooling or water cooling system if you intend to over drive that power hog CPU.

Also, you might need a decent NorthBridge heatsink/fan combo. Depends on how high the FSB gets and all that.

So, 120$? Maybe you want to only overclock a little and use the stock Intel cooler (not that bad). Then you can buy a cheaper mainboard.
