THe p5q seems to be real popular, but I suspect it has more to do with added value than price. I would go X-48 if money can be blown there. X-48 seems to be real easy to OC. I got my q6000 up to 1333 FSB in about 5 seconds and its stable, and thats with stock cooling. So, im sure if you went with the Ultra-120, you can beat mine.
how did you do with cable management on that 900? any tips? pics? I see what your saying about x-48, but as you stated the p5q-e has a very good price/performance ratio and thats why i chose it. the 8 sata ports are really a plus in my book. Ill have to see come december though as the x-48 boards may come down in price....
