Not a huge difference in performance, just the Deluxe is better built (lasts longer) and is a better OC'er and has more features/ports, but not a lot more.

I got a Gigabyte DS4 based on recommendations on this forum and I'm very happy with it.<br />
<br />
Ive got my 6300 at a nice stable 3.1Ghz with only 667Mhz Ram and with the minimal of OCing knowledge.<br />
<br />
The DS4 has heatsinks, a sexy looking heatpipe running the length of the board, RAID support, OC's well and for (seemingly pointless) bragging rights has solid state capacitors.<br />
<br />
So gets a big <img src="/images/smilies/thumb.gif" border="0" alt="" title="Thumb" class="inlineimg" /> from me

I don't think the DS4 is available here in North America nor it will ever but......<br />
<br />
If you're going for the long run, the P5B Deluxe is the very best but the 2nd recommendation will be the GIGABYTE DS3 with a P965 chipset. I'm sure ABIT is good but not as good as those two. The P5B (vanilla) is not as good as the DS3 IMO.

DON'T GET THE P5B VANILLA!<br><br>
The max Vdimm is 2.1V and with an E6300, you need a lot of ram voltage.<br><br>
Get the P5B Vanilla if you plan to do some hardware mods.

I managed to get 2.8 on stock voltage by only raising the FSB.<br />
So if you want a quick OC just do:<br />
<br />
FSB = 400<br />
Memory multiplier = 2.0<br />
<br />
And turn off all the fancy/smart mobo features bar any thermal monitoring<br />
<br />
<br />
I got a stable 3.1 from the E6300 with:<br />
<br />
1.34 Vcore<br />
Memory multiplier = 2.0<br />
+0.300 memory voltage<br />
+0.1 MCH<br />
+0.1 FSB voltage

Although I've change the frequency from 333 to 334 so that way I don't see 2,999.99mhz in CPU-Z. Now I see 3,003mhz. <br />
<br />
I also change the Vdimm from 2.25 to 2.30v but I'm using a 2:3 ratio, but a 4:5 will be just fine.
