If you are not going to go SLI/Crossfire, <a href="http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.asp?Item=N82E16813128018" target="_blank">this</a> is the board of choice. People have had great luck with the DS3's.

$30 cheaper. wifi seems to suck anyways. better off with a PCI card.

That is the 965<b>G</b> version, the <a href="http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.asp?Item=N82E16813128012" target="_blank">965<b>P</b></a> is the one known for overclocking. The 965G has a onboard video controller and will not overclock as high as the 965P.<br><br>
Edit:<br>
DO NOT BUY a 965G chipset based motherboard if you plan to overclock at high FSB frequencies.

I hear very good things about the ABIT AW9D-MAX<br><br><a href="http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.asp?Item=N82E16813127011" target="_blank">http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16813127011</a><br><br>
That would (seem to) be the best choice. and if you're going cheaper and don't want SLI/XF then... the DS3 or S3 would be the best choice. The only difference between the S3 and the DS3 is that the DS3 has solid capacitators and will allow your board to have a longer lifespan of about +3 years but that's like 8 total years. So, you could save your money and get an S3.<br><br>
S3: <a href="http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.asp?Item=N82E16813128017" target="_blank">http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16813128017</a><br>
DS3: <a href="http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.asp?Item=N82E16813128018" target="_blank">http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16813128018</a>

The AW9D-MAX is the best board out there now (and it can be volt modded!) but that does cost $$$. So Abit for performance, and DS3 for value.

that does. Full SLi is currently not supported in a super awesome board for OC'ing. i would wait for reviews on the 590 chipset.

So. lets say I have a AGP GeForce 6800GS. What board then would be best to have the CPU with? If I am going to wait for the 590 Chipset then maybe I should get something temporary or is the 590 Chipset not far away from a release?

SLI can be run on any board with 2 x16 PCI express slots. I'd reccomend the Abit AW9D-Max.

Forget Core 2 Duo in combination with an AGP card.. you'll need a PCI-E card to be able to get a motherboard that overclocks well.<br />
<br />
The ABIT, like all other 975X boards, runs at x8, x8. I would indeed wait until the new nVidia 590 chipset boards come out.
